Reversal of mucosal tolerance by subcutaneous administration of interleukin-12 at the site of attempted sensitization.


Oral feeding of proteins causes peripheral T-cell tolerance, as revealed by reduced delayed-type hypersensitivity (DTH) reactivity after immunization. This type of tolerance can be due both to passive T-cell anergy and active immunosuppression. Using ovalbumin-fed mice we studied whether putatively immunostimulatory cytokines could break this state of… (More)
