In-depth understanding of novel immunotherapeutics in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) requires general familiarity of the intestinal immune system. In this chapter, we discuss fundamentals of intestinal immunity focusing on pathways presumed to be involved in human IBD. We work through fundamentals of adaptive and innate immune responses, drawing where available, specific differences between the developing vs. adult immune system.
