What can be called as a breakthrough research in medical intervention is the finding that led to the association of bacteria with controlling the allergic response along with an influential function in humans. The fact that human body plays a host for millions of micro-organisms is known to everyone. But the association of these microbes with human body in a beneficial way is referred to as commensalism and the bacteria responsible for carrying out this task are called commensalism bacteria.
Bacteria and human ‘allergic’ immune system
Immunoglobulin E, basophils and mast cells are the main factors that play an instantaneous role in carrying out allergic reactions in case of hypersensitivity. This research establishes that signals from commensalism bacteria play a crucial role in controlling the levels of basophils in blood through interaction with Ig E. As a result, it sheds new light on the upcoming therapeutic approach in either controlling or blocking the progression of delirious allergies. This is a momentous allegation that can bring magnificent results only through proper in depth studies of commensalism microbes and their related signals.
