The study of formation of defensive mechanisms in the human fetal lung at different stages of embryogenesis is of great interest, in particular, because of the high frequency of pathology of the respiratory organs in neonates. Several structural components of the lungs are involved in the development of local reactions of cellular and humoral immunity: broncho-associated lymphoid tissue (the BALT system), lymphoid ceils of the lung parenchyma, and also the alveolar macrophages. The formation of… Expand
