Sutas Y, et al. (1996) Suppression of lymphocyte proliferation in vitro by
bovine caseins hydrolyzed with Lactobacillus casei GG-derived enzymes.
J. Allergy Clin. Immunol. Jul;98(1):216-224
Hydrolysis of caseins with L. casei GG-derived enzymes generates molecules
with suppressive effects on lymphocyte proliferation. Intestinal
microflora, can contribute to degradation of food antigens in the gut and
modify their immunoactivities can be beneficial in the downregulation of
hypersensitivity reactions to ingested proteins in patients with food

Evaluated the effects of cow's milk with and without the addition of
Lactobacillus GG in infants with atopic eczema and cow's milk allergy. An
additional group included breast- fed infants in which Lactobacillus GG
was given to nursing mothers.
