    Abstract

    © 2015 by Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. The term allergy is used to describe clinical illnesses produced by excessive immune responses to otherwise innocuous allergens. An allergen is a type of protein or low-molecular-weight chemical that comes from the environment. This specific immune response is mediated by both innate (mast cell, basophil, eosinophil, and dendritic cell) and adaptive (T-and B-cell lymphocyte) immune systems.
