Pattern of Oral Desensitization in DNCB Presensitized Guinea Pigs

Abstract

The pattern of DNCB (2, 4-dinitrochlorobenzene) oral desensitization and its antigenic specificity were investigated in guinea pigs. In search of antigenic specificity of DNCB oral desensitization, animals were fed oxazolone (4-ethoxymethylene-2- phenyl-oxazol-5-one) in a DNCB presensitized group, and conversely, DNCB fed in an oxazolone presensitized group. For the study of the pattern of oral desensitization, guinea pigs were initially sensitized to DNCB and followed by feeding of DNCB for 6 days, and challenged on the 13th, 21st, 29th, 37th and 45th days after sensitization. Oxazolone feeding in DNCB presensitized guinea pigs had no effect on the development of the fully responsive DNCB contact sensitivity (72. 85g), and DNCB feeding in oxazolone pre-primed animal had no effect on the development of oxazolone contact sensitivity (79. 37g). On the contrary, oxazolone feeding in DNCB preprimed guinea pigs and DNCB feeding in oxazolone pre-primed resulted in, respectively, oxazolone and DNCB oral tolerance (44.44% p < 0.01 & 42.06%p<0.01). The effect of desensitization appeared even one day before the completion of 6 days' feeding and the efficacy lasted about 30 days by the natural waning of contact sensitivity.
