According to the study, published in the journal Molecular Pharmaceutics, researchers led by Amir Ghaemmaghami layered epithelial, dendritic, and fibroblast cells from scaffolds into a model.

The researchers exposed the model to an allergen and found that it was able to exhibit an immune response as would happen in real tissue.
