The anti-histaminic activity of (+)-cyanidanol-3 on isolated guinea pig ileum
S Ramaswamy, Pillai N Padmanabha, NS Parmar
(+)-Cyanidanol-3 was tested for its in vitro antihistaminic activity on isolated guineapig ileum. It inhibited histamine induced contractions without affecting those of acetylcholine, 5-hydro-xytryptamine and potassium chloride. It is concluded that (+)-Cyanidanol-3 produces a relatively specific antihistaminic activity which may be mediated through H1-and H2-receptors.
