Basophil activation tests based on CD203c and CD63 expression using different innards from goat (Patient 2); (A) CD203c+ activated basophils; (B) CD63+ degranulated basophils. The patient had only eaten and reacted to goat's lung, the stimulation with other innards likely represents cross-reactivity to alpha-gal.
