Abstract

Polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMN) are linked invariably to the innate immune response, particularly to the defence against bacterial infection. T lymphocytes are studied mainly in virus infections, the defence against tumours, the development and progression of chronic inflammatory processes, in autoimmune phenomena and in materno-fetal tolerance. There is, however, increasing evidence for communication and interactions between PMN and T cells that we discuss here in the context of different physiological and pathological conditions, including acute and chronic inflammatory disease, defence against tumours, and maintenance of pregnancy. © 2009 Elsevier Ltd.
