Brief description Reduced exposure to bacteria during early life has become a leading candidate to explain the escalating rate of allergic disease. Despite this, the development and maturation of the pathways involved in normal recognition of bacteria in children has not been explored. In this proposal we set out to address this critical shortcoming in both normal and allergic children. Mapping normal maturation of such pathways will help us to identify better early markers of allergic disease.
