Investigation of the immunological mechanism inducing cows’ milk sensitive enteropathy
Project Code: T07003
The aim of this project was to see if there is an association between the behaviour of certain immune cells in children who are allergic to cows’ milk and the general increase in development of allergies of all kinds among children.
The researchers concluded that the reduced production of the regulatory cells might result in failure to establish immune tolerance within the intestine, allowing any potentially food-reactive lymphocyte to respond unchecked. They have not established a direct mechanism for generation of these cells, and suggest that further work will be needed for this.
