Can we Predict or Avoid the Allergenic Potential of Genetically Modified Organisms?. Obermeyer, G. & Ferreira, F. International Archives Of Allergy And Immunology, 137(2):151, 2005.
abstract   bibtex   
The exponential rise in the prevalence of allergic disorders in the last few decades has clearly contributed to increased costs of health care and has negatively affected the quality of life of millions of children and adults. A dose-dependent relationship between allergen exposure and sensitization and the subsequent development of allergic disease is well stablished. Therefore, it is desirable to decrease the allergen exposure in the environment, particularly in plants used for human consumption, as these may cause life-threatening allergic reactions in sensitized humans.
