UAlberta scientists find cause of allergic reactions to medicine

This is potentially huge. Good on ya folks!

Patients often experience itchiness, swelling, or rashes after receiving drugs or injections, painful reactions known as pseudo-allergies.

Researchers at the University of Alberta, in collaboration with researchers at Johns Hopkins University, have traced those reactions to a single protein. They are now exploring ways to block the protein and lessen the side-effects of medications.
