immune cell in stomach

Does anyone have any info. about a recent discovery that there is an immune cell in the stomach that causes people to react to foods like they are a pathogen. I am wondering if people who are having no luck healing their G.I. tracts suffer from this?

Hi, Jim.

70% of all the lymphoid (immune cells) tissue in the body is clustered about the GI tract. We have been discussing that on this 'site for years.

Recent discovery, indeed. They are finally catching up on what has been known by the world for 20 years and claiming it for their own. A common practice.
