Skin immunology: An overview of skin disease.
The skin is a complex organ that acts as a stage for a range of inflammatory processes, including infection immunity, tumour immunity, autoimmune, and allergies, in addition to providing a strong barrier against external shocks. A wide range of cells work together to create effective immune responses, which are launched by resident populations and change when new cell populations are recruited to the skin. The initiating signals, the characteristics of the infiltrating cell populations, and the cytokines produced (cytokines are secreted proteins that allow for cell–cell communication; usually refers to communication between immune–immune cells or stromal–immune cells) all influence the signs and symptoms of inflammation.Author(s): Harris Recardo
