Mice immunized with ovalbumin develop a strong aversion to ingesting sweetened egg white dilutions or ovalbumin solutions. In immunized animals, gavage or voluntary ingestion of ovalbumin triggers an increase of vascular permeability in the intestine; pretreatment with a mixture of histamine and serotonin antagonists blocked this reaction, but not the aversion; dexamethasone inhibited both the aversion and the increase in permeability. The aversion was transferred to normal recipient mice with… CONTINUE READING
