Neutrophils Follow Stromal Omens to Limit Peritoneal Inflammation

Immunity. 2020 Apr 14;52(4):578-580. doi: 10.1016/j.immuni.2020.03.015.


The omentum, an adipose tissue rich in fat-associated lymphoid clusters in the peritoneal cavity, is associated with immune surveillance and protection against peritoneal contaminants. In this issue of Immunity, Jackson-Jones et al. reveal how omental stromal cells regulate neutrophil trafficking to control peritonitis.
