Science News – Hope for Eliminating Allergies to Cats

Spanish researchers report that allergies to cat dander can be significantly reduced through the use of sublingual immunotherapy. Creating a dissolvable allergy pill from an extract of cats’ shed skin cells, scientists found that nearly two-thirds of participants in the study demonstrated a much improved tolerance to the presence of cats. In light of the fact that there were no adverse reactions to the treatment, researchers are hopeful that this method of “exposure” treatment may significantly decrease other allergic responses.
