Dietary Elimination of Soybean Components Enhances Allergic Immune Response to Peanuts in BALB/c Mice.


BACKGROUND Food allergy research is hampered by a lack of animal models that consistently mimic human food allergic responses. Laboratory mice are generally fed grain-based chow made with large amounts of soybeans rich in immunomodulatory isoflavones. We tested the role of dietary soy components in the induction of food allergic responses in the BALB/c… (More)
