BACKGROUND Although food allergy is a serious health problem in westernized countries, factors influencing the development of food allergy are largely unknown. Appropriate murine models of food allergy would be useful in understanding the mechanisms underlying food allergy in human subjects. OBJECTIVE We sought to determine the susceptibility of different strains of mice to food hypersensitivity. METHODS C3H/HeJ and BALB/c mice were sensitized to cow's milk (CM) or peanut by means of… Expand
Maternal allergy increases susceptibility to offspring allergy in association with TH2-biased epigenetic alterations in a mouse model of peanut allergy.
TLDR
This study is the first to demonstrate that increased susceptibility to peanut allergy in O-PAM mice is associated with epigenetic alteration of the Il4 gene promoter, which might provide insight into preventing the development of early-life allergy. Expand
Oral anaphylaxis to peanut in a mouse model is associated with gut permeability but not with Tlr4 or Dock8 mutations.
TLDR
Enhanced gut permeability resulting in ingested allergens in the bloodstream in C3H/HeJ mice when compared with C57BL/6 mice is discovered, which correlated with increased number of goblet cells in the small intestine. Expand
IgE-mediated systemic anaphylaxis and impaired tolerance to food antigens in mice with enhanced IL-4 receptor signaling.
TLDR
Augmented IL-4Rα signaling confers increased intestinal permeability and dramatically enhanced sensitivity to food allergens, which is solely IgE dependent in F709 mice. Expand
Impairing oral tolerance promotes allergy and anaphylaxis: a new murine food allergy model.
TLDR
A new model of food allergy to oral antigen is demonstrated in common laboratory strains of mice that recapitulates many features of clinical food allergy that are not seen in other models and is demonstrated that SEB impairs oral tolerance and permits allergic responses. Expand
Contribution of Classic and Alternative Effector Pathways in Peanut-Induced Anaphylactic Responses
TLDR
Investigation of the effector pathways of allergic and anaphylactic responses of different strains of mice in a clinical relevant model of peanut allergy demonstrates that in three mouse strains, components of the classic and alternative anAPHylactic cascade are differently expressed, leading to differential outcomes in parameters of allergic disease and food induced systemic anaphYLaxis. Expand
Elevated Antigen-Driven IL-9 Responses Are Prominent in Peanut Allergic Humans
TLDR
Equivalent, and minimal, Ag-dependent pro-inflammatory cytokine levels in both healthy and peanut allergic volunteers argues against a key role for such cytokines in maintenance of clinical tolerance to food antigens in humans. Expand
Oral sensitization with shrimp tropomyosin induces in mice allergen-specific IgE, T cell response and systemic anaphylactic reactions.
TLDR
The results support the importance of the oral way of sensitization and of the in-depth characterization of the anaphylactic response for the development of a suitable in vivo model of food allergy. Expand
Dietary Elimination of Soybean Components Enhances Allergic Immune Response to Peanuts in BALB/c Mice
TLDR
The results indicate that elimination of soy components from the diet enhances peanut sensitization in BALB/c mice and Rodent diet is an important variable and needs to be taken into consideration when designing experiments involving animal models. Expand
Antibody Production, Anaphylactic Signs, and T-Cell Responses Induced by Oral Sensitization With Ovalbumin in BALB/c and C3H/HeOuJ Mice
TLDR
The observation that BALB/c spleen cell cultures were more resistant than those of C3H/HeOuJ mice to the stimulus of LPS make this strain prone to exhibit Th2-mediated food allergic reactions and very adequate for the study of the features of OVA that make it allergenic. Expand
Role of TLR4 in allergic sensitization to food proteins in mice
TLDR
It is concluded that although TLR4 status can influence T‐cell responses and anaphylaxis severity, the nature of the influence is highly antigen‐ and strain‐dependent. Expand

A murine model of IgE-mediated cow's milk hypersensitivity.
TLDR
This mouse model of IgE-mediated cow's milk hypersensitivity (CMH) that mimics the clinical features of immediate CMA in humans should provide a useful tool for evaluating the immunopathogenic mechanisms involved in CMA and for exploring new therapeutic approaches. Expand
A murine model of peanut anaphylaxis: T- and B-cell responses to a major peanut allergen mimic human responses.
TLDR
This murine model of IgE-mediated peanut hypersensitivity mimics the clinical and immunologic characteristics of peanut allergy in human subjects and should be a useful tool for developing immunotherapeutic approaches for the treatment of peanut allergies. Expand
An Enteric Helminth Infection Protects Against an Allergic Response to Dietary Antigen1
TLDR
Results suggest that helminth-dependent protection against allergic disease involves immunoregulatory mechanisms that block production of allergen-specific IgE. Expand
Strain-dependent induction of allergic sensitization caused by peanut allergen DNA immunization in mice.
TLDR
The results indicate that the type of immune responses to pDNA immunization in mice is strain dependent, and models for studying human allergen gene immunization require careful selection of suitable strains. Expand
Differences in antigen-specific T-cell responses between infants with atopic dermatitis with and without cow's milk allergy: relevance of TH2 cytokines.
TLDR
These data confirm for the first time at the clonal level that food allergy in infants with AD is associated with production of T(H)2 cytokines by circulating antigen-specific CD4(+) T cells, whereas tolerance to food antigens isassociated with low levels of these cytokines. Expand
Protein Allergenicity in Mice
TLDR
Experience to date indicates that the inherent sensitizing potential of novel food proteins can be evaluated on the basis of antibody responses stimulated by parenteral exposure of BALB/c strain mice, and this work measures allergenic activity as a function of the ability of proteins to provoke IgG and IgE antibody responses. Expand
Food Allergy Animal Models
TLDR
A selection of animal models actively being investigated that will contribute to the understanding of what makes a protein an allergen and future predictive models for assessing the allergenicicity of novel proteins is presented in this review. Expand
Oral administration of IL-12 suppresses anaphylactic reactions in a murine model of peanut hypersensitivity.
TLDR
It is concluded that oral rIL-12 treatment has therapeutic as well as preventive effects on peanut allergy, which is associated with increased IFN-gamma production. Expand
The production of interferon-gamma in response to a major peanut allergy, Ara h II correlates with serum levels of IgE anti-Ara h II.
TLDR
The level of IFN-gamma production in response to Ara h II may be an important factor in determining the development of peanut-specific IgE responses, according to patients with peanut allergy and control subjects. Expand
