1. The hypothesis that induced histamine is the intrinsic regulator of the autonomic changes of the microcirculation is reviewed; it is noted that when formed in excess, histamine can cause pain in such isolated regions as the head and neck. 2.

It proved to be effective in the treatment of vertigo.
