The role of regulatory T cells in the acquisition of tolerance to food allergens in children

Allergologia et immunopathologia

E Bernaldo de QuirosR Correa-Rocha

Abstract

Food allergy is a pathological immune reaction that identifies certain harmless food proteins, usually tolerated by the majority of the people, as a threat. The prevalence of these food allergies is increasing worldwide and currently affects 8% of children. Exacerbated reactions to milk...read more

Schoenlein-Henoch Purpura

Schoenlein-Henoch purpura is a systemic non-thrombocytopenic purpura caused by hypersensitivity vasculitis and deposition of IgA-containing immune complexes within the blood vessels throughout the body, including those in the kidney. Discover the latest research on Schoenlein-Henoch purpura here.

Allergy and Asthma

Allergy and asthma are inflammatory disorders that are triggered by the activation of an allergen-specific regulatory t cell. These t cells become activated when allergens are recognized by allergen-presenting cells. Here is the latest research on allergy and asthma.

Inflammation & Obesity

Obesity is the accumulation of abnormal or excessive fat that may interfere with the maintenance of an optimal state of health. The excess of macronutrients in the adipose tissues stimulates them to release inflammatory mediators such as tumor necrosis factor α and interleukin 6, and reduces production of adiponectin, predisposing to a pro-inflammatory state. Discover the latest research on inflammation and obesity here.

Immunosuppression

Immunosuppression trends for solid organ transplantation have undergone a perceptible shift over the past decade. Discover the latest research on immunosuppression here.

Pharmacological Treatment of Allergies

Allergies, also known as allergic diseases, are a number of conditions caused by hypersensitivity of the immune system to typically harmless substances in the environment. There are various pharmacological treatments for allergy including antihistamines, anti-cholinergics, decongestants, etc. Discover the latest research on pharmacological treatment of allergies here.

Follicular T Helper Cells

Follicular t helper cells are an important subset of helper t-cells which help to the formation of germinal centers and b-cells differentiation. Discover the latest research on follicular t helper cells here.

Treg Cells

Treg cells are critical for the maintenance of immune homeostasis and suppression of naturally occurring self-reactive t cells. Discover the latest research on treg cells here.

Food Toxicology

Food toxicology is the study of potential toxins or harmful synthetic agents in food and how these can lead to adverse health outcomes in living organisms, including humans. Here is the latest research on food toxicology.

Immune Tolerance

Immune tolerance happens when the immune system is not responsive to a substance or organism and does not elicit an immune response. This is a normal physiological response for some antigens, especially when detecting self from non-self. This has been a potential area of therapy for some disorders. Here is the latest research on immune tolerance.

Food Hypersensitivity

Food hypersensitivity is divided into food allergy and non-allergic food hypersensitivity, the latter of which is also known as food intolerance. Food allergy is an abnormal immune response to food while food intolerance is a detrimental reaction, often delayed, to a food, beverage, food additive, or compound found in foods that produces symptoms in one or more body organs and systems. Discover the latest research on food hypersensitivity.

Food Allergy Pathogenesis

Food allergies result from an immune response to food molecules and are classified as either IgE-mediated, non-IgE-mediated or both. Discover the latest research on Food Allergy Pathogenesis here.
