The T lymphocyte in food-allergy disorders

Published in Current Opinion in Allergy and Clinical Immunology. 2003, vol. 3, no. 3, p. 199-203
Abstract While much attention is focused upon the role of IgE antibodies in food-allergy disorders, the T cell remains central to all forms, both IgE and non-IgE-mediated, of food-hypersensitivity responses. This review considers the central role of the T cell in this group of disorders and provides a comprehensive overview of recent studies that elucidate our understanding of the mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of food allergy in regard to the role of the T cell.
