REV 5901 [alpha-pentyl-3-(2-quinolinylmethoxy)-benzene-methanol] has been shown to be a competitive antagonist of peptidoleukotrienes. In vitro it has a Ki value of 0.7 microM vs. [3H]leukotriene D4 ([3H]-LTD4) binding to membranes from guinea pig lung. Against LTC4-, LTD4- and LTE4-induced contractions of guinea pig parenchymal strips, it has Kb values of(More)
REV 2871 (CHBZ) was taken up by rat mast cells and human leukocytes in a specific and saturable manner. The compound can be hydrolyzed by a granule-associated enzyme in the mast cell to an ionic metabolite (REV 3579) whose in vitro profile is identical to that of disodium cromoglycate (DSCG). REV 3579, although achieving millimolar concentrations inside(More)
A series of new substituted arylmethyl phenyl ethers has been prepared. These compounds were tested as inhibitors of 5-lipoxygenase (5-LO) in rat neutrophils, in vitro antagonists of leukotriene-induced contraction of guinea pig (GP) lung parenchymal strips, and inhibitors of slow reacting substance of anaphylaxis (SRS-A) mediated bronchospasm in the GP in(More)
A series of new 1,3-oxazolo[4,5-h]quinolines has been prepared. These compounds were tested as inhibitors of antigen-induced release of histamine (AIR) in vitro from rat peritoneal mast cells (RMC) and as inhibitors of IgE-mediated passive cutaneous anaphylaxis in the rat (PCA). After several modifications of the original lead, the most potent compound of(More)
REV 2871 (CHBZ) and its putative metabolite REV 3579-Z (also designated in the literature as RHC 3579-Z) were shown to be potent and orally effective inhibitors of passive cutaneous anaphylaxis (PCA) in the rat (ED50 = 12 mg/kg). The activity profiles of CHBZ, REV 3579-Z and disodium cromoglycate (DSCG) were compared as inhibitors of histamine release (HR)(More)
RHC 3288 [1-methyl-2(1,3,4-oxadiazol-2(3H)-one-5-yl) benzimidazole] and twenty-five related 5-substituted oxadiazolones have been investigated for their antiallergic activities in three in vitro models of anaphylaxis. Sixteen compounds were potent (I50 less than or equal to 50 microM) inhibitors of antigen-induced release of histamine (AIR) from rat mast(More)
Nylidrin (RHC 3432-A) has been investigated for its antiallergic activity in three in vitro models. Nylidrin was an effective inhibitor of IgE-mediated release of histamine from passively sensitized rat peritoneal mast cells and human basophils, and of IgG1-mediated release of histamine from passively sensitized guinea pig lung slices. The inhibition of the(More)
RHC 3024 has been investigated for its antiallergic activity in three in vitro models of anaphylaxis. We have also compared its activity profile in these models with that of disodium cromoglycate (DSCG) and other antiallergic agents. As an inhibitor of antigen-induced release of histamine from rat mast cells RHC 3024 was 4 times more potent than DSCG. In(More)
