Abstract: Oral tolerance is a specific immune unresponsiveness to food antigens to prevent hypersensitivity reactions. We investigated whether zinc deficiency affects oral tolerance. Rats were fed a control (C) or zincdeficient (ZD) diet, or pair-fed (PF) to ZD rats for 28 d. Beginning on d 7, rats were administered ovalbumin (OVA) orally to induce tolerance, or PBS 3 times/wk, and were then immunized by OVA injection.
