The effects of three histamine H1 receptor antagonists, epinastine (CAS 80012-43-7, WAL-801 CL), ketotifen (CAS 34580-13-7) and oxatomide (CAS 60607-34-3), on mediator release have been studied in human peripheral leukocytes. When leukocytes from asthmatic patients sensitive to mite were stimulated with the allergen, epinastine inhibited histamine release with a concentration required for 50% inhibition (IC50) of 3 x 10(-5) mol/l and leukotriene C4 generation. On the other hand, ketotifen or… Expand
