Innate lymphoid cells and their interactions with parasites. Innate lymphoid cells (ILCs) arise from a common lymphoid progenitor (CLP) and are delineated as ILC1, 2 or 3 based upon expression of lineage‐specific transcription factors and production of key cytokines. Natural killer (NK) and lymphoid tissue inducer (LTi) cells also arise from CLP and share some functional characteristics with ILCs. (Neill und Fallon 2018)
