Knowledge about the history and development of therapeutic agents holds a central position in the education and training of pharmacists and pharmacologists. Students enjoy learning about the discovery of drugs, including details about the pioneer workers involved (apothecaries, organic chemists, pharmacologists, and physiologists) and the role played by serendipity. The treatment of people suffering from allergies and the development of drugs that block the actions of histamine at H1 and H2… 
Synthesis of anti-allergic drugs
TLDR
This article mainly reviews the research progress of allergic reactions with histamine H1 receptor antagonists and expounds the important aspects of the design and synthesis of various new compounds.
GER and Antacid Medications
TLDR
Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) have become some of the most frequently prescribed medications in both children and adults, and their effectiveness for treatment of peptic conditions in the pediatric population has been established.
Effects of antihistamines on the H295R steroidogenesis - Autocrine up-regulation following 3β-HSD inhibition.
Investigating G protein-coupled receptor 35 signalling and its role in cardiovascular disease
TLDR
A pathological role for GPR35 is demonstrated in the development of hypertension and its associated end-organ damage in the stroke-prone spontaneously hypertensive rat, and studies suggest that antagonism of G PR35 could be a novel therapeutic strategy to treat hypertension and/or heart failure.
Effects of Histidine and &bgr;-alanine Supplementation on Human Muscle Carnosine Storage
TLDR
It is confirmed that &bgr;-alanine, and not L-histidine, is the rate-limiting precursor for carnosine synthesis in human skeletal muscle.
The Effects of Acute and Chronic Diphenhydramine and Cetirizine Use on Learning and Memory in Rats

Pharmacological Management of Allergic Rhinitis in the Elderly
TLDR
The main management trend for allergic rhinitis in elderly patients is the same as the trend in young patients, and Pharmacological treatment is quite similar in both older and younger patients with allergic Rhinitis.

Histamine and its receptors
TLDR
The discovery of nonimidazole derivatives such as brain‐penetrating H3 antagonists has provided drugs that are in early‐phase clinical trials, possibly for application in obesity, and a variety of central nervous system disorders, such as memory, learning deficits and epilepsy.
International Union of Basic and Clinical Pharmacology. XCVIII. Histamine Receptors
TLDR
The H3R is an autoreceptor and heteroreceptor providing negative feedback on histaminergic and inhibition on other neurons, a block of these actions promotes waking and the development of anti-inflammatory drugs is anticipated.
The role of histamine H1 and H4 receptors in allergic inflammation: the search for new antihistamines
TLDR
Accumulating evidence is reviewed suggesting that histamine indeed has roles in inflammation and immune function modulation in such diseases and a possible synergy between H1 and H4-receptor antagonists in targeting various inflammatory conditions is reviewed.

The histamine H3 receptor: from gene cloning to H3 receptor drugs
TLDR
relevant information on this target protein is discussed and the development of various H3 receptor agonists and antagonists are described, and their effects in preclinical animal models are described.
Case history: the discovery of fluoxetine hydrochloride (Prozac).
TLDR
This research discusses the many challenges that the team encountered during the development of fluoxetine hydrochloride, which has now been widely acknowledged as a breakthrough drug for depression.
Personal reflections on Sir James Black (1924–2010) and histamine
TLDR
Sir James Black, Nobel laureate (1988), became interested in the role of histamine in gastric acid secretion in the early 1950s and provided the compound burimamide, which was used to define histamine H2 receptors in 1972 for the first time, and to verify the action in human volunteers.
