Yes, but if the acquired immune tolerance persist, it will growth back again and again. Also, the antagonistic friendly flora plays a role controlling it too. If the flora isn’t in good shape, there is advantage for candida colonization.
This is a complex syndrome that may have different origins, including genetic, immune defects, immune suppressors, and lack of antagonistic flora.
I understand the theory but generally do not agree with it. For instance I have read one or two studies where a weal was induced after a certain therapy, not immune sensitization shots, were administered. One in particular was from using, if i recall properly, a histamine blocker. The effect as I understand it basically reversed the effect that Il-10 had on Th cell differentiation. So yes, one could say there was induced tolerance, but the tolerance was induced from Il-10. Il-10 doesnt just happen to be around in large numbers under normal conditions of a person with candida. Many other intracellular intruders use Il-10 production/imitation as a means of thwarting the immune system and surviving. Treating the effect of that caused an increased cell mediated response towards candida, and probably any other intracellular pathogen. Which leads me to ask if anyone has ever tested cell mediated immunity using the skin test for other pathogens when a negative response to candida was seen?
