This compilation offers minireviews derived from paintings provided on the - gean convention: “First Crossroads among Innate and Adaptive Immunity,” which happened October 9–14, 2005 on the Hilton convention middle at the - land of Rhodes, Greece. The convention incorporated classes devoted to host r- ognition of and reaction to pathogens, innate immune networks, antigen pres- tation, and adaptive immune responses, every one headlined by means of a number one scientist on the leading edge of that box. The intimate networking and interplay of dendritic cells, T cells, B cells, NK cells, NK-T cells, and supplement throughout the host reaction to pathogens and tumors are just now transforming into elucidated. The respective fields that target those immune cells and molecules are inclined to exist in parallel worlds, with minimal trade of knowledge and ideas. The objective of this convention used to be to begin crosstalk among those immunological fields, and to advertise and facilitate dialogue at the interactions among the innate - mune reaction and the adaptive immune reaction, and eventually breed colla- ration among those components of research. The “First Crossroads among Innate and Adaptive Immunity” Aegean convention succeeded in bringing jointly and connecting scientists and specialists from all over the world to deal with severe components of innate and adaptive immunity — whatever invaluable for the improvement of extra effective medical alternate and crosspollination among those fields.
