Food allergy alters jejunal circular muscle contractility and induces local inflammatory cytokine expression in a mouse model
(BioMed Central, 2009-05-18)
Background: We hypothesized that food allergy causes a state of non-specific jejunal dysmotility. This was tested in a mouse model. Methods: Balb/c mice were epicutaneously sensitized with ovalbumin and challenged with ...
