Sensitizing Properties of Proteins: State of the Science
A review series published in Clinical and Translational Allergy
The Protein Allergenicity Technical Committee of the ILSI Health and Environmental Sciences Institute (HESI) organized a symposium on the sensitizing properties of proteins in Prague in April 2012. Experts discussed known mechanisms by which proteins may cause sensitization, shared information about experimental models for predicting protein sensitizing potential, and explored whether such experimental techniques may be applicable in regulatory settings. In addition to an Executive Summary, three accompanying reviews address the critical factors and methods for assessing allergic sensitization.
