Meccanismi epigenetici nella patogenesi dell’allergia al latte vaccino
Epigenetics and cow’s milk allergy: implication for pathogenesis
<p>Cows&rsquo; milk allergy (CMA) is one of the most&nbsp;frequent allergies in child, often occurring quite soon after birth. Recent years have been featured by an increasing&nbsp;prevalence of CMA that can often be the first appearance of the so-called &ldquo;atopic march&rdquo;. Typically, CMA is featured&nbsp;by immunoglobulin E (IgE)-mediated reactions; however, the pathogenetic basis of IgE-mediated CMA is not yet&nbsp;completely understood. Recent evidences suggest that epigenetic factors, such as DNA methylation and regulatory&nbsp;non-coding RNAs could play a role in allergic diseases, including CMA. Here, we review the state of the art regarding&nbsp;the involvement of some epigenetic modifications in allergic diseases, and especially in CMA. We describe that&nbsp;epigenetic derived molecules, in addition to be pathogenetic factors contributing to typical CMA allergic phenomena,&nbsp;could also serve to produce molecules which may act as novel, specific and easily accessible biomarkers for CMA&nbsp;diagnosis and monitoring.</p>
