Targeting CYP11A1 in the Steroidogenic Pathway For Treating Allergic Diseases
Dr. Gelfand’s laboratory has identified CYP11A1 as a key regulator of allergic responses through its effect on steroidogenesis. Inhibition of CYP11A1 with aminoglutethimide in an animal model of either asthma or peanut allergy prevented an allergic response and the accumulation of inflammatory cells in a dose dependent manner. The therapeutic approach seen in asthma and peanut allergy could be applicable to other allergic diseases.

New Target Identified for Food Allergy Therapy

Researchers at National Jewish Health have identified an enzyme that is essential to the allergic reaction to peanuts. Blocking the enzyme’s activity in sensitized mice prevented diarrhea and inflammation and reduced levels of several proteins associated with allergies. Read about this enzyme.
