Understanding the factors that regulate the way food and inhalant allergens are recognized and processed into an allergen response is paramount if we are able to translate epidemiological findings into disease pathogenesis. , the biological activities) and the concomitant environmental insults that accompany their access to the immune response, like exposure to pollutants such as diesel particulates or passive tobacco smoke are likely to be important in determining whether an individual mounts an allergic response, ignores the stimulus, or evolves a protective tolerizing reaction.
