If you or someone you know could be allergic to cats, then there could be a solution that could take that all away! Researchers at the University Hospital in Zurich are working on a vaccine that could block what’s known as the “major cat allergen” in felines, making them less likely to set off triggers in humans. Publishing the results in The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, scientists say the HyopCat injection has been “tolerated well” in their test subjects.
PopSugar notes that 10 percent of the Western world is allergic to cats. What would happen is that the cat would be given a shot of Fel d 1. This is also being developed for dogs as well.
