A Vaccine That Prevents Cats From Making You Allergic to Them
Injection for the cat
No worries for those who are afraid of needles since it is the cat that should receive the vaccine and not the man. The researchers noted that after vaccination, 54 cats produced effective antibodies to destroy the Fel-d1 protein.
This protein is present on the skin and in cat hair. It is also found in the salivary glands, but also in the lacrimal glands, sebaceous glands and anal glands. The study will soon be published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology. This vaccine, which should be available within three years, will also ensure that cats are not abandoned when owners suffer from allergies, which unfortunately happens quite frequently.
