Oral tolerance is a long-recognized mechanism of inducing immune tolerance. Since the last conference on oral tolerance in 1995, there has been an explosion in our understanding of potential mechanisms of oral tolerance through the use of mouse models, a greater appreciation for the existence of novel regulatory T cells, and a clearer view of the way in which the mucosal immune system responds. This volume brings these three areas together to continue to promote the rapid expansion of knowledge in this area.
