DC subsets are coordinately specialized to activate innate and adaptive immune responses in vivo. pDCs can orchestrate events during the course of viral infections, atopy, autoimmune disease, and metastatic cancer. Subsequent studies will need to precisely identify the functional role of pDCs in these various conditions in order to determine whether they are targets for therapeutic interventions.
