|Date:||30 April 2020|
In this video, professor Loscher discusses normal immune development in infants; reviews the dysregulation in the immune system that results in allergic responses; describes how we can manipulate the immune system to overcome this dysregulation; and explains the differences between breast- and bottle-fed infants.
