The pharmacology of histamine H2-receptor antagonists.


The structure of the first histamine H2-receptor antagonist, burimamide was described in 1972. Since then, numerous compounds with diverse chemical structures have been shown to possess H2-receptor antagonist activity. Most of these compounds comprise an aromatic ring and polar group linked by a flexible chemical chain. Currently five H2-receptor… (More)
