Title:
Immunomodulatory effects of aqueous birch pollen extracts and phytoprostanes on primary immune responses in vivo. 
Abstract:
BACKGROUND: We recently demonstrated that pollen not only function as allergen carriers but also as rich sources of bioactive lipids, such as phytoprostanes, that modulate human dendritic cell (DC) function in a way that results in an enhanced T(H)2 polarization in vitro. OBJECTIVE: Here we analyzed the immunomodulatory capacities of Betula alba (white birch) aqueous pollen extracts (Bet-APEs) and pollen-associated phytoprostanes in the murine system in vitro and in vivo. METHODS: DC function wa...    »
