AbstractThe systemic unresponsiveness of the immune system to orally administered antigens is known as oral tolerance. Recent findings describe a new step for the induction of oral tolerance, consisting in the homing of \(FOXP3^+\) regulatory T cells to the small bowel and the local acquisition of full immunosuppressive capacities, a process in which retinoic acid-producing dendritic cells might play a crucial role.
