A new group of immune cells, innate lymphoid cells, i.e. ILC cells has recently been identified in the territory between the cells of innate and acquired immunity. While the understanding of their functioning and grouping still remains incomplete, their importance in defending the interfaces of the body seems clear. The central role of ILC cells is to sense danger signals in the body and modify immune responses on the basis of this information. In addition to understanding of the defense response, future research. on ILC cells is expected to provide information about the mechanisms of autoimmunity and allergic inflammation as well as disorders of immunity associated with cancer and obesity.
