Project Description

Mast Cell Action

MAST CELL ACTION is a new UK charity for people suffering from Mast Cell Activation Disorders (MCAD), newly recognised disorders arising from the inappropriate release of mast cell mediators, for which there is limited knowledge or treatment. We provide support for patients and their doctors, work to raise awareness of MCAD and fund research. Diagnostic criteria for Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS), a type of Mast Cell Disorder, were agreed at an international conference in 2010, and then published. MCAS was coded into IDC10 in 2017.
