Breast-fed mice

Mus musculus

We have attempted to identify the antigen-presenting cells (APCs) that are responsible for the development of immune tolerance in mice that have been breast-fed by antigen-exposed lactating mothers. Recent experiments performed in our laboratory have shown that the exposure of a mother to an airborne antigen during lactation impacts asthma development in their progeny. We found that airborne allergens were efficiently transferred from the mother to the neonate through the milk and that this transfer resulted in the development of antigen-specific tolerance.
