Mass spectrometric analysis of digesta does not improve the allergenicity assessment of GM crops


An investigation of the potential aller- genicity of newly expressed proteins in genetically modified (GM) crops comprises part of the assessment of GM crop safety. However, allergenicity is not completely predictable from a definitive assay result or set of protein characteristics, and scientific opinions regarding the data that should be used to assess allergenicity are continuously evolving.
