Effects of histamine and histamine antagonists on sperm motility
The effects of histamine and its antagonist on human sperm motility were studied. It was shown that;
1.Histamine increases sperm motility
2. H2 antagonist cimetidine had no effect on sperm motility and classical antihistamines decreased sperm motility.
3. The inhibition produced by H antagonists could be overcome with increasing concentrations of histamine.
4. It is postulated that histamine may play a rote in regulating sperm motility and acts through specific histaminergic receptors.
