Mast Cells – How They Affect Vaccine, Drug & Food Allergies

Mast Cells – How They Affect Vaccine, Drug & Food Allergies

Mast cells are “the forgotten cells” and play a key role in many allergic reactions. On The Smartest Doctor in the Room podcast, Dr. Mitchell speaks with Harvard expert, Dr. Mariana Castells about the latest information on Mast Cell Activation Syndrome and how mast cells can be involved in a wide range of allergic reactions. Mast cells are really the forgotten children of our immune system.

Join Dr. Mitchell and Dr. Castells in this in-depth conversation on how mast cells, an underappreciated cell, is so important in allergic reactions to vaccines. And we’re going to talk a little bit about the COVID vaccination program, drugs, and foods and we’re going to discuss a newly described syndrome, mast cell activation syndrome.

Dr. Mariana Castells is internationally known as an allergy immunology specialist at Harvard Medical School where she is the director of both the drug hypersensitivity and desensitization center. She’s also the head of the Mastocytosis Center. She’s what you call a triple threat in our profession. She’s a top researcher, she’s a well-known clinician, especially with her drug desensitization clinic and she’s really a highly regarded teacher.
