To study which phase of viral infection promotes antigen sensitization via the airway and which type of antigen-presenting cells contributes to antigen sensitization, BALB/c mice were sensitized by inhalation of ovalbumin (OA) during the acute phase or the recovery phase of influenza A virus infection, and then 3 weeks later animals were challenged with OA… CONTINUE READING
