EGG ALLERGY


Key Allergens

Eggs contain a lot of allergenic proteins. They are named gal d 1, gal d 2 d etc. up to gal d 10.

Gal d 1 to 4 are allergens found in the egg white. Gal d 5 is an allergenic protein in the yolk called serum albumin.

Gal d 7 is an allergen linked to those with an allergy to the consumption of chickens.

Gald d 8, 9 and 10 are allergens linked to fish/chicken allergens (gal d 8 is also known as alpha-parvalbumin).

Associated Syndromes

An allergy to egg can sometimes be associated with an allergy to chicken, this is called Bird-Egg Syndrome. In these cases sensitivity to egg is to the proteins in egg yolk, alpha livetin (gal d 5), which is found in both chickens and eggs.

Cross Reactivity

Egg allergy is seen sometimes in patients who suffer from a chicken food allergy and also in combination with a fish allergy.

Other foods containing aldolase and enolase proteins include chicken, cod, catfish, salmon and tuna.

Beef, chicken and pork are other foods containing serum albumin proteins.
