  • Allergens in Cats with Asthma

    icon-blog Winn Funded Research

    Moriello, K. A., R. L. Stepien, et al. (2007). "Pilot study: prevalence of positive aeroallergen reactions in 10 cats with small-airway disease without concurrent skin disease." Vet Dermatol 18(2): 94-100.

    The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of positive allergen reactions in cats with small-airway disease (i.e. 'feline asthma'). Affected cats had significantly more individual positive allergen reactions on both tests than unaffected cats. The increased prevalence of individual positive allergen reactions in affected cats may be due to increased immunological reactivity in these cats. Further studies are needed to answer this question and to determine what role, if any, aeroallergens have in the pathogenesis of this complex feline disease.
