pork-cat syndrome

Introduction

  • some people with cats develop an allergy to eating pork as the allergic response to the albumin produced from the cat's liver cross-reacts with albumin in pork creating a acute allergic reaction soon after eating it
  • this is in contrast to the 3-8hr post-prandial delay allergic reaction one sees in tick-induced mammalian red meat allergy (MMA)
