  • The issue is called cross contamination , which means the transfer of harmful substances to foods. (blogspot.com)
  • organs
  • Future studies may include measures of local events in the shock organs in relation to food intake, for instance utilising inflammatory markers in jejunal fluids. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)

  • In older children, adolescents, and adults, a substantial part of all IgE-mediated food allergies is caused by cross-reacting allergenic structures shared by inhalants and foods. (uu.nl)
