Biochemical name:Cat flea FS-1
Allergenicity:After 2 weeks of exposure to chambered fleas, all 30 experimentally sensitized dogs showed serum IgE binding to rCte f 1 in ELISA. Of 10 clinical flea-allergic dogs, 8 (80%) showed IgE binding to rCte f1 in ELISA. IgE binding to flea serum antigens could be inhibited by rCte f 1 > 80%. - All 6 sensitized dogs tested had positive intradermal skin test in response to recombinant Cte f 1. Frank,G.R. et al. Adv.
