SummaryCattle with differing degrees of resistance toBoophilus microplus have responses to tick allergen which correlate with their resistance level The total amount of histamine in the skin also correlates with both resistance and the immediate hypersensitivity reactions, but the sensitivity to injected histamine does not. Treatment with the antihistamine drug mepyramine maleate suppresses the cutaneous hypersensitivity reactions. The results suggest that the main pharmacologically active… CONTINUE READING
