Alergologia e Imunologia Clínica

BACKGROUND:

Peanut allergy is the most common cause of anaphylaxis and food-related death. However, there is currently no approved immunotherapy treatment. Hence, this warrants the need for relevant and convenient animal models to test for adequate immunotherapies.

MATERIALS & METHODS:

In this study, we compared three mouse strains: CD1, BALB/c and C57, to select a model of peanut allergy. After that, we conducted then a therapeutic study using an immunogenic peanut extract encapsulated in nanoparticles made with polymer Gantrez® following the solvent displacement method.

RESULTS & CONCLUSION:

After implementing a dosing schedule with oral commercial peanut butter, the antibody responses, cytokine profiles and, above all, the anaphylaxis induced after a challenge with peanut proteins, showed that the outbred CD1 strain was the most susceptible to peanut sensitization. CD1 sensitized mice were orally immunized with three doses of the nanoparticle formulation capable of protecting them against the severe anaphylactic symptoms induced by the peanut challenge.
