Bovine serum albumin is a powerful immunogen able to produce allergic reactions. It is used during bone marrow transplantation and in vitro fertilization.

IgE-mediated hypersensitivity: positive skin tests and specific IgE against BSA. Sensitization to BSA may develop following natural contact (eating meat, drinking cow's milk, exposure to animal epithelia, dander or saliva containing serum albumin cross-reactive with BSA)

Serum sickness-like reactions: IgG 1 mediated sensitization to BSA. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap, ImmunoCap
