We could add a new term for this actually, as a child of interaction
interaction between organisms ; GO:0051704
---[i] physiological interaction between organisms ; GO:0051706
------[i] induction of immune response in other organism ; GO:new
---------[i] induction of hypersensitive response in other organism ;
Don't use GO:0016068 (type I hypersensitivity) because that term
describes the process in the organism reacting to the allergen.
