Our MCAS medical brochure has been developed in collaboration with medical specialists in mast cell disorders. It includes the latest published consensus findings for diagnosing MCAS, alongside patient case examples and information on medical management.
We believe these resources will be helpful in understanding MCAS and providing practical advice for diagnosis and treatment of mast cell activation syndrome.

The following listed presentations are available to watch online and have been given by doctors and researchers across multiple disciplines who have specialised in MCAS.
The Royal College of GPs has developed an Ehlers Danlos Syndromes Toolkit that has a section on MCAS under Emerging Major Associations. The Toolkits have been created for primary healthcare professionals, patients and carers. These toolkits can be used to assist in the delivery of safe and effective care to patients.
