Effects of alcohol consumption on the allergen-specific immune response in mice
Research output: Contribution to journal › Journal article › Research › peer-review
There is evidence that chronic alcohol consumption impairs the T-helper 1 (Th1) lymphocyte-regulated cell-mediated immune response possibly favoring a Th2 deviation of the immune response. Moreover, a few epidemiological studies have linked alcohol consumption to allergen-specific IgE sensitization.
