By contrast, activity is not seen against histamine H2- or H3-mediated, nor acetylcholine- or serotonin-mediated phenomena, and both compounds are virtually without effect in models measuring pharmacological effects on the central nervous system (CNS). Explanation of these observations is found in their high… CONTINUE READING
