Oral sensitization of W/W(v) mice with ovalbumin and possible involvement of the decrease in gammadelta-T cells.

Abstract

Mast-cell-deficient WBB6F1-W/W(v) mice (W/W(v)) and congenic wild-type (+/+) mice were sensitized by oral administration of 0.1 or 1.0 mg ovalbumin (OVA) in the form of gavage every day for 9 weeks, and active systemic anaphylaxis (ASA) was induced by intraperitoneal injection of OVA. Production of OVA-specific IgG1 in response to oral sensitization of the… (More)
