This volume provides protocols for mouse models of allergic diseases and guidelines for choosing a particular strains, allergen, adjuvant, and route of sensitization. Chapters detail types of allergic disease, methods that are frequently employed to analyze pathophysiology of allergic diseases, manipulation of intestinal microbiota, and desensitization of immure responses in animal models. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
Authoritative and cutting-edge, Animal Models of Allergic Disease: Methods and Protocols aims to offer a comprehensive collection of protocols and experience-derived instructions to further allergic disease research.
