Abstract: Several studies analyzing the immune responses in patients with cow's milk allergy (CMA) have used T-cell lines or T-cell clones that require prolonged in vitro cell culturing and may result in a switched cell phenotype and function. We investigated immune responses to beta-lactoglobulin (b-LG) in peripheral blood mononuclear cells after a short in vitro antigen stimulation in children with acute CMA (both IgE-mediated and non-IgE-mediated forms) and in those who outgrew an IgE-mediated CMA. Healthy controls were also investigated. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells were assayed for IL-13, IFN-, IL-4, and IL-10. Although b-LG induced a cytokine production and/or cell proliferation almost in all children, included healthy controls, differences were observed among the four groups. Children with IgE-mediated CMA had a marked Th2-response, with high IL-13 production and proliferation, but low IFN-; by contrast, children with non-IgE-mediated CMA produced no, or very low, IL-13 and cell proliferation. Children, who outgrew CMA, showed a shift to a Th1-response, with reduced IL-13 and increased IFN-. IL-10-responses were high in all groups, with the highest level in healthy children; by contrast, IL-4 was undetectable in all children. This study highlights the use of shortly stimulated peripheral blood cells to investigate the food-induced immune responses.
