BACKGROUND Individuals with birch pollen allergy frequently experience hypersensitivity reactions to certain foods, primarily because of IgE antibodies specific for the major birch pollen allergen Bet v 1 that cross-react with homologous food allergens. OBJECTIVE We sought to characterize the major T-cell epitopes of Bet v 1 and to investigate their involvement in the cellular cross-reactivity with homologous food allergens. METHODS T-cell epitope mapping of Bet v 1 was performed by testing… CONTINUE READING
