The impact of microbes on restraining the immune response to allergens has been extensively studied and is a key element of the hygiene hypothesis. Lung type 2 innate lymphoid cell responses to airway allergens can be inhibited by administration of a number of microbial products; however, it is unclear whether such an effect would be observed with natural infections and how sustained any observed inhibitory effects would be. To answer these questions, we used a murine model of physiological microbial exposures through cohousing SPF laboratory mice with pet store mice and examined the acute type 2 response to intranasally delivered fungal allergen extract Alternaria alternata. We found laboratory mice cohoused with pet store mice for two weeks display a suppressed ILC2 response to A. alternata which resulted in reduced eosinophilia. By comparison, mice cohoused for at least two months had ILC2 and eosinophil responses similar to SPF mice despite dramatic changes to the composition of the immune cell populations in the lungs. Lung ILC2 in two-month cohoused mice were still sensitive to subsequent inflammatory cues, as administration of poly(I:C) was able to suppress ILC2 activation and eosinophilia equally well in SPF and two-month cohoused animals. These findings suggest ILC2 dynamically respond to their environment and are not easily desensitized long-term.
