London: Coming soon, A jab to cure cat allergies, say scientists who claim to be developing the new vaccine which will protect against the itching, sneezing andwatering eyes that felines cause in up to one in 10 people. Early trials suggest the product is safe, effective and lasts longer than current treatments, which can also have serious side-effects. If further tests are successful, the scientists behind the vaccine hope they will be able to develop similar products for the millions who suffer hay fever and other allergies,`The Daily Telegraph` reported. "The results of our initial safety and tolerability study indicate that the vaccine is safe and well-tolerated. "Furthermore, we have defined the dose of vaccine displaying the greatest efficacy in a surrogate clinical outcome marker, which can be used in future clinical studies," they wrote in the `Journal of Allergy & Clinical Immunology`. The scientists, led by Prof Mark Larch at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada, say that cat allergy is one of the most common allergies and is "strongly associated withasthma", with children suffering particularly badly.
