Inhibition of IgE- and non-IgE-mediated histamine release from human basophil leukocytes in vitro by a histamine H1-antagonist, desethoxycarbonyl-loratadine.


Loratadine, a new nonsedating histamine H1-antagonist, has been shown to inhibit immunologic release of inflammatory mediators in addition to its H1-receptor blocking properties. After oral administration, the agent is metabolized primarily to desethoxycarbonyl-loratadine (DCL). The basic piperidine, DCL, is readily soluble in water, whereas the nonbasic… (More)
