FEATURING: Ebenezer Satyaraj, PhD
Allergies to cats are the most common animal-origin allergy. While cats produce several allergens, up to 95% of people with sensitivities to cats respond to the primary cat allergen, Fel d 1, a protein secreted in the saliva and sebaceous secretions of felines. Allergen avoidance is the most effective solution. However, it involves limiting interaction with cats or, in some cases, relinquishment. In this webcast, Ebenezer Satyaraj will discuss the scientific basis of a novel approach to simply, safely and effectively neutralize Fel d 1, the most potent feline allergen, utilizing anti-Fel d 1 IgY antibodies added to the cat's diet.
