In recent years, our understanding of the initiation of T(H)2-type immunity has increased significantly, yet the mechanism behind the induction of T(H)2 responses and allergic sensitization to food antigens largely remains an enigma. Dendritic cells (DCs) were first described almost 4 decades ago and have since been recognized as the most important antigen-presenting cells and crucial in the induction of T-cell differentiation. Here we discuss our current knowledge of the role of DCs in food… CONTINUE READING
