Eucheuma cottonii sulfated oligosaccharides decrease food allergic responses in animal models by up-regulating regulatory T (Treg) cells (2017)
Journal Article
allergic responses in animal models by up-regulating regulatory T (Treg) cells. Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, 65(15), doi:10.1021/acs.jafc.7b00389. ISSN 0021-8561

In the present study, the anti-food allergy activity of Eucheuma cottonii sulfated oligosaccharide (ESO) was investigated. ESO was obtained by enzymatic degradation and purified by column chromatography. RBL-2H3 cells and BALB/c mouse model were used... Read More
