A critical role for eotaxin in experimental oral antigen-induced eosinophilic gastrontestinal allergy
Despite marked advances in the understanding of allergic responses, the mechanisms regulating gastrointestinal allergy are not very well understood. We have developed a model of antigen-induced eosinophil-associated gastrointestinal allergy and characterized the role of eotaxin and IL-5. Challenge of allergen-sensitized mice with oral allergen, in the form of enteric-coated beads, resulted in marked allergen-specific IgG1 and IgE, Th2-type (IL-4 and IL-5) cytokine production, and eosinophil...[Show more]
