Unlike milk or egg allergies, seafood allergies can continue throughout a person's lifetime. So Dr. Andreas Lopata and other James Cook University researchers are attempting to develop a vaccine for patients who have bad seafood reactions. The scientists are looking at a wide variety of fish species to determine which ones are most likely to cause an allergic reaction. "Research shows seafood allergic reactions are as common as peanut allergy, if not more so, yet peanut research is dominant," Lopata said. "The challenge is to find the right diagnostics to pick up all these allergies." Story
