Publications Database

Evidence-based Research on Alpha-gal Syndrome
the Mammalian Meat Allergy

With this publications database, we hope to consolidate all the evidence-based research related to alpha-gal syndrome, as well as select publications on pertinent topics such as:

  • pork-cat syndrome and other mammalian meat allergies
  • other carbohydrate allergies
  • cross-reactive carbohydrate determinants
  • the role of ecto- and endoparasites in inducing food allergy
  • a few key papers on vector management and ecology
  • the evolution of the α-gal immune response
  • allergy and autoimmune disease
  • hypersensitivity reactions to biologics
  • co-factors
  • a few papers on idiopathic anaphylaxis
  • airborne reactions to food allergens
  • food industry issues related to carrageenan and cross-contamination of meat products, etc.
  • a smattering of papers on α-gal, viral glycan shields, and the development of drugs and vaccines employing the α-gal immune response
  • a few papers on α-gal, xenotransplantation, and the development of knock-out pigs

Some gray literature with interesting implications was included.

The database was created by Lee Ann Kendrick and Sharon Forsyth, who also manage and update it. Publications were compiled with the help of  Matthew von Hendy of  Green Heron Research Resources, assisted by John Bianchi of Revivicor. Matthew is an accomplished research librarian with more than 20 years of professional experience working in a variety of government and technical libraries. He has worked at the EPA, NASA and the National Academies of Sciences where his work was cited in 10 different National Academies reports.

Stars indicate publications flagged as important or of interest in one or more review articles by Commins SP, Hilger C, Platts-Mills TAE, and van Nunen S, and/or deemed as such by the database manager.
