The aim of this study was to investigate interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) and interleukin-4 (IL-4) production by peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) in response to oral challenge in patients with food allergy. Thirty-one patients were compared with 10 healthy subjects. Cell cultures were prepared before and 150 min after single-blind, placebo-controlled… CONTINUE READING
