When I was a child, my brothers and I routinely ate peanut butter and jelly for lunch. By the time my children completed high school, their classrooms were peanut-free. 32 million Americans currently suffer from food allergies, some of which are life threatening. What is driving this generational change? We have proposed that 21st century lifestyle habits have resulted in the depletion of allergy-protective bacterial populations from our guts. We will discuss the mechanisms by which intestinal bacteria regulate allergic responses to food and the development of novel therapeutics to restore the protective function of the gut barrier.
