Regulation of IgE Antibody Responsiveness by Ingestion of Antigen and by Maternal Influence

  • Ellen E. E. Jarrett
Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (volume 8)


Most of the antigens which enter the body in any large quantity are food antigens. Nature has provided a mechanism whereby the transition from the shelter of intra-uterine life to the antigenic assault of the outside world is taken gradually. The very young mammal is spared the massive onslaught of food antigens by a suckling period, the duration of which varies from species to species according to the maturity of the animal at birth. It is only civilised man who interferes with this arrangement.
