Disease relevance of Food Hypersensitivity


Psychiatry related information on Food Hypersensitivity

  • Latex allergy has resulted in death, progressive asthma, severe food allergy from cross-reactivity, and disability of health care professionals with the accompanied loss of self-esteem and income from their inability to work in their chosen profession [6].

Gene context of Food Hypersensitivity

  • CONCLUSION: These results indicate that oral allergen challenge in atopic patients with food allergy triggers systemic release of IL-10 [27].
  • After mitogen stimulation, culture supernatants from patients with food allergy contained significantly less IFN-gamma but increased IL-4 when compared with healthy controls [28].
  • These lymphokine abnormalities may contribute to the elevation in IgE and the eosinophilia seen in severe food allergy [29].
  • Glucagon-like peptide-2-enhanced barrier function reduces pathophysiology in a model of food allergy [30].
  • These results suggest that DEP may act as a mucosal adjuvant in the gut enhancing systemic Th1 and Th2 immune responses and might play a role in oral immunization and food allergy [31].
