    Do you mean MCAD? As in Mast cell activation?

    If that's what you mean (MCAS or MCAD) I would google Dr. Lawrence Afrin's research and also TMS for a cure (the Mastocytosis Society) as a starting point.

    I would also be interested in this. There doesn't seem to be a lot of info as far as studies but reading about the symptoms such as anaphylaxis is worrisome. I find all the initials confusing.

    Also Lisa Klimas's blog Mast Attack has a ton of scientific info, links and citations.
