Food allergy news: Promising research findings from Johns Hopkins

Johns Hopkins researchers have published a promising study in the journal Nature in which they appeared to induce oral tolerance of an allergen in mice. Whether the tolerance translates to humans, and whether the tolerance translates beyond oral exposure to include inhalation and physical contact remains to be seen, but it’s still promising.

You can find the abstract and a gated copy here: Oral tolerance to food-induced systemic anaphylaxis mediated by the C-type lectin SIGNR1 Yufeng Zhou1,7, Hirokazu Kawasaki1,7, Shih-Chang Hsu1, Reiko T Lee2, Xu Yao1,3, Beverly Plunkett1, Jinrong Fu1, Kuender Yang4, Yuan C Lee2 & Shau-Ku Huang.
