    Background: Adenosine induced bronchoconstriction in patients with asthma is thought to be mediated by the synthesis and release of autacoids from airway mast cells. In vitro, adenosine induced constriction of asthmatic bronchi is blocked by a combination of specific histamine and cysteinyl...

Boyano // Carcinogenesis;Mar2008, Vol. 29 Issue 3, p500 

    In our previous works, we have demonstrated that terfenadine (TEF) induces DNA damage and apoptosis in human melanoma cell lines. In this present work, we have studied the effect of histamine on viability of A375 human melanoma cells and the cell-signalling pathways through which TEF may induce...

    Background: The budesonide/formoterol combination is successfully used for fast relief of asthma symptoms in addition to its use as maintenance therapy. The temporarily increased corticosteroid dose during increasing inhaler use for symptom relief is likely to suppress any temporary increase in...

    It has been known for a long time that inhaled adenosine-monophosphate (AMP) induces airway obstruction in asthmatic patients, but not in healthy subjects. The mechanism of AMP is indirect and occurs via its decay product, adenosine. It stimulates mast cells through its low-affinity receptor A2B...

    Dolichos biflorus Linn. (Family- Fabaceae) is commonly known as 'Horse gram'. The seeds are used in the treatment of piles, pain, constipation, wounds, urinary calculi, cough, edema, and asthma. The present study was therefore designed for evaluation of antihistaminic activity of seeds of...
