Probiotic supplementation and oral tolerance induction can reduce certain types of food allergy. The objectives of this study were to investigate the allergy-reducing effects of probiotics (VSL#3) and/or oral tolerance induction via low doses of an allergen supplementation in β-lactoglobulin (BLG)-sensitized mice. Three-week-old, male BALB/c mice were(More)

SCOPE This study investigated the effects of supplementing different ratios of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids (O6H = 10:1, O3O6 = 4:1, and O3H = 1:4) to western-style diets on cow β-lactoglobulin (BLG) induced allergic reactions in Balb/c mice. METHODS AND RESULTS Three-week-old mice were randomly assigned to three diet groups (n = 20/group). At 9 wk of(More)
