Genetically modified plants and food hypersensitivity diseases: usage and implications of experimental models for risk assessment

Prescott, Vanessa; Hogan, Simon P


The recent advances in biotechnology in the plant industry have led to increasing crop production and yield that in turn has increased the usage of genetically modified (GM) food in the human food chain. The usage of GM foods for human consumption has raised a number of fundamental questions including the ability of GM foods to elicit potentially harmful immunological responses, including allergic hypersensitivity. To assess the safety of foods derived from GM plants including allergenic...[Show more]
