(3) Among non-ABP-certifiable fellowships, most were surgical pathology related; 51% (n = 187 of 364) were in non-organ-specific surgical pathology (general or surgical/oncology); and 39% (n = 142 of 364) in organ-specific surgical pathology (breast, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, gynecologic, pulmonary, renal, soft tissue), with the most frequent being gastrointestinal pathology (reported by 8% of respondents, n = 56 of 699).

From then on, we can identify peculiar characteristics of the organ-specific or tissue-specific immune responses that include the immune responses (i) at the epithelial or mucosal barrier (skin and gastrointestinal tract,ii) in a complex organ (liver), and (ii) in organs with immunological privilege (brain and eyes) [2-5].
