Non-specific cough is defined as non-productive cough in the absence of identifiable respiratory disease or known aetiology. It is commonly seen in paediatric practice. These children are treated with a variety of therapies including anti-histamines. Also, anti-histamines are advocated as an empirical treatment in adults with chronic cough.

A double-blind, placebo-controlled cross-over study (n = 12) was followed. After each treatment 30 biological units (BUs) of Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus or Phleum pratense were injected intradermally and the early (15 min) and late-phase response sizes (6 and 24 h) were measured. Skin biopsies were taken at 24 h for immunocytochemistry and in situ hybridization.

We are interested in understanding the pathogenesis of the cutaneous IgE-mediated late phase reaction. A double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized cross-over study with 10 subjects of the effect of the non-sedating antihistamine, terfenadine (Selddane), on the cutaneous reaction to antigen (ragweed or mixed grass) administered intradermally and over denuded blister bases was performed. The activity of terfenadine on anti-IgE-induced mediator release from the skin mast cell, lung mast cell and basophil was also examined in vitro. Terfenadine significantly inhibited the size of the cutaneous reaction at every hour between hours 1 and 9 (hr 9, control 2250 +/- 500 mm2 vs drug 1250 +/- 250 mm2, P < 0.01, n = 10) and showed some inhibitory effect at hours 10-12. While terfenadine blocks histamine release after nasal antigen challenge the release of mediators at skin blister sites was unaffected. The infiltration of leucocytes into the blister supernatant was unaffected by terfenadine although previous studies have shown significant inhibition with another antihistamine, cetirizine. In vitro, terfenadine, like other antihistamines, was found to have inhibitory activity on anti-IgE-induced mediator release at concentrations of 10(-4)-10(-5) M in lung and skin mast cells and basophils. We conclude that the effects of the newer antihistamines on cellular movement into the skin may be diverse, that terfenadine may show organ specificity in vivo and that terfenadine significantly decreases both the early and late gross inflammatory response of the skin to antigen. We cannot, as yet, explain the mechanism(s) by which this occurs.

Allergic rhinitis is a common airways hypersensitivity disease. Histamine and leukotrienes are involved in the pathogenesis of allergic rhinitis. Conventional treatments include topical steroids and antihistamines. Due to the adverse effects of these treatments, new drugs like leukotriene receptor antagonists are being investigated for the treatment of allergic rhinitis. A total of 90 patients suffering from allergic rhinitis were enrolled in this prospective, randomized, controlled study. Patients were divided randomly into three groups of 30 patients each. Group I was administered fluticasone nasal spray (200 μg in each nostril) once a day, Group II was administered fluticasone nasal spray (200 μg in each nostril) plus cetrizine (10 mg) orally once a day and Group III was administered fluticasone nasal spray (200 μg in each nostril) plus montelukast (10 mg) orally once a day. Efficacy was measured based on daytime and nighttime symptom scores. Safety was evaluated on the basis of psychomotor tests, laboratory investigations and subjective assessment. The present study showed that montelukast add-on therapy is as efficacious as conventional therapies in controlling total symptom score, but it is more efficacious in controlling nighttime symptoms. Furthermore, montelukast add-on therapy does not cause psychomotor impairment as observed with cetrizine.

The goal of this study was to quantify in the dog the error that is made in assessing drug tissue concentrations when no correction for blood contamination is performed and hence to determine in which organs such a correction should be made. The organs investigated were the heart, the brain, the liver and the skeletal muscle, and the test drug used was the H1-antihistamine, cetirizine (0.1 or 0.6 mg/kg/day for 3 days, orally, n = 6 dogs). Radiolabelled serum albumin was used to quantitate blood trapped in the tissues. Blood and tissue samplings were performed 2 h after the last drug administration. Mean (+/-SEM) volumes of blood trapped in the liver, heart, muscle and brain were 263 +/- 12, 91 +/- 3, 27 +/- 1 and 20 +/- 2 microL/g, respectively. Apparent tissue/blood concentration ratios of cetirizine were 2.39 +/- 0.33, 1.11 +/- 0.09, 0.77 +/- 0.07 and 0.37 +/- 0.05 in the four organs. When correction for residual blood is not performed, cetirizine concentrations are underestimated (-13.6 +/- 3.2%) in the liver, slightly overestimated (+4.7 +/- 1.5 to +6.3 +/- 2.8%) in the brain, and neither over nor underestimated in the heart and muscle. Simulation data over a wide range of theoretical drug tissue/blood concentration ratios indicate that in the dog: (a) for the liver, correction of apparent tissue concentration for residual blood should be performed when the drug tissue/blood concentration ratio achieved is <0.8 or >4, (b) for the heart, correction should be made when this ratio is < or =0.4 and (c) for the brain and muscle, no correction is necessary unless the ratio is < or =0.1.

The Urticaria Patient Daily Diary, including the Urticaria Activity Score, has recently been validated in adults with chronic idiopathic urticaria (CIU), but its validity in adolescents is unknown. This study was designed to (1) assess the content validity of the Adolescent Urticaria Patient Daily Diary and, (2) collect exploratory data on symptom experiences, sleep interference, and health-related quality of life (HRQOL) of adolescents with CIU. The Urticaria Patient Daily Diary was modified to increase its relevance with an adolescent population. A qualitative, cross-sectional, multicenter study was then conducted in the United States so that adolescent subjects could provide information on the impact of urticaria on their lives and comment on the diary. Data were collected via in-person semistructured interviews with subjects 12-17 years of age with moderate-to-severe CIU. The most bothersome symptom was itching (44%). The impact of CIU on HRQOL varied. The majority of subjects (78%) reported waking up at least once a night. Overall, subjects found the diary to be clear, easy to comprehend, and easy to complete. Revisions were made to the diary based on feedback from subjects. After nine interviews, no new information was received. The symptoms of CIU are bothersome to adolescents, particularly itch, and urticaria has a negative impact on the sleep of adolescent patients. The final Adolescent Urticaria Patient Daily Diary has evidence of content validity in patients with CIU ranging from 12 to 17 years of age.

The pharmacologic activity and potency of the two enantiomers of cetirizine in the management of allergic skin conditions were investigated by studying the effect of treatment with 5.0 mg cetirizine; 2.5 mg levocetirizine, the (R)-enantiomer; and 2.5 mg ucb 28557, the (S)-enantiomer, on histamine-induced wheal and flare response in 18 healthy volunteers. Each treatment was administered as a single oral dose in randomized, double-blind, and crossover manner, and the efficacy of treatment was assessed over a period of 32 h, as per cent inhibition of the histamine-induced wheal and flare areas before treatment. Blood and urine samples were collected in a time-dependent manner and analyzed for the total amounts of each study drug, to elucidate their pharmacokinetic profiles.

There were no significant age or sex differences between the AR and control groups. Pretreatment PSQI and actigraphy scores were worse in the AR group vs the control group. After treatment, sleep quality improved, and there were no differences in actigraphy and PSQI scores between the 2 groups. Before treatment, the T4SS was significantly correlated with the sleep efficiency, daytime napping episodes, and total nap duration variables of actigraphy (r = -0.53, P = .004; r = 0.43, P = .02; and r = 0.39, P = .04, respectively). The T4SS was correlated with the total PSQI score (r = 0.67, P < .001).

The effects of two selective H1 receptor blockers, cetirizine and loratadine, in comparison with placebo, on basophil histamine release and the bronchial response to histamine were assessed. The studies were performed in a group of 18 patients with pollinosis and 22 with atopic asthma. Both tests were performed before and after medication. Histamine release from isolated basophils was evaluated by Shore's method using anti-IgE and pollen antigen as stimulants. The bronchial provocation tests were performed by Ryan's method. The results were expressed as PC20FEV1. It was shown that both drugs significantly inhibited basophil histamine release induced by anti-igE or specific allergen. It was also found that these drugs effectively reduced the bronchial response to histamine challenge. These findings confirm the beneficial clinical effect of a new generation of selective H1 blockers in the treatment of IgE-mediated allergic diseases, and also the possible role of these drugs in the therapy of atopic asthma.

Olopathadine, a newly developed histamine H1-receptor antagonist, was compared with cetirizine in its suppressive effects on histamine-induced wheal and flare reaction using an iontophoresis technique in a double-blind, crossover, placebo-controlled fashion. As a result, olopathadine was found to have effects comparable to cetirizine. This finding may predict the efficacy of this new H1-antagonist in treating pruritic skin diseases.

Both active medications were significantly more effective than placebo and had a comparable onset of action in alleviating the symptoms of seasonal allergic rhinitis. The efficacy of both active drugs was comparable for the first 4 h after administration of the drugs on day 1 and day 2. However from 22 to 24 h after the first dose cetirizine was significantly superior to fexofenadine for the major symptom complex score and for sneezing. Concerning the total symptom complex score at day 2 fexofenadine could not reach superiority to placebo. No serious adverse events were reported.

One hundred thirteen children aged 5 to 14 years (mean age, 7.7 years) with hay fever limited to grass pollen and no other clinically important allergies were randomized in an open study involving 6 Italian pediatric allergy centers to receive specific SLIT for 3 years or standard symptomatic therapy. All of the subjects had hay fever symptoms, but at the time of study entry, none reported seasonal asthma with more than 3 episodes per season. Symptomatic treatment was limited to cetirizine, loratadine, nasal budesonide, and salbutamol on demand. The hay fever and asthma symptoms were quantified clinically.

Intrigued by the report demonstrating an increase in brain histamine levels by ethanol administration and central histamine transmission to affect the anxiety related behaviors, the present study examined the permissive role of central histaminergic transmission in the acute anxiolytic-like effect of the ethanol on elevated plus maze (EPM) in mice. Results demonstrated that prior administration of the agents that are known to enhance the brain histamine transmission, i.e. low dose of histamine (0.1μg/mouse, i.c.v.) or histamine precursor, l-histidine (500, 1000mg/kg, i.p.) or low dose of histamine releasing agent (H3 receptor inverse agonist), thioperamide (2μg/mouse) attenuated the acute anitanxiety-like effect of ethanol (2g/kg, i.p, 8% w/v) in mice on EPM. However, pre-treatment with the H1 receptor antagonist, cetirizine (0.1μg/mouse, i.c.v.) or H2 receptor antagonist, ranitidine (50μg/mouse, i.c.v.) failed to affect the attenuating effect of low dose of histamine on ethanol induced anxiolysis. On the other hand, only H1 receptor antagonist, cetirizine (0.1μg/mouse, i.c.v.) was able to partially reverse the attenuation of ethanol induced anxiolysis by l-histidine (1000mg/kg, i.p.). Surprisingly, in mice pre-treated with the higher dose of histamine (50μg/mouse, i.c.v.) or thioperamide (10μg/mouse, i.c.v.), the ethanol (2g/kg, i.p.) induced antianxiety-like effect was further enhanced on EPM. Furthermore, this potentiating effect of high dose of histamine on the ethanol (2g/kg, i.p.) was exacerbated on pre-treatment with the H1 receptor antagonist, cetirizine, while H2 receptor antagonist, ranitidine completely reversed this action of high dose of histamine on ethanol. Supportive to these results, i.c.v. pre-treatment with H1 receptor agonist, FMPH (2, 6.5μg/mouse, i.c.v.) attenuated while H2 receptor agonist, amthamine (0.1, 0.5μg/mouse, i.c.v.) enhanced the ethanol induced anxiolysis in mice. Thus, it is reasonable to contemplate that central histaminergic transmission functions to negatively modulate the acute ethanol-induced anxiolysis probably via stimulation of postsynaptic H1 receptor and histamine might contribute to the anxiolytic action of ethanol via H2 receptor activation.

A cDNA clone for the human histamine H1 receptor was isolated from a lung cDNA library and stably expressed in CHO cells. The recombinant receptor protein present in the cell membranes, displayed the functional and binding characteristics of histamine H1 receptors. Mutation of Ser155 to Ala in the fourth transmembrane domain did not significantly change the affinity of the receptor for histamine and H1 antagonists. However, mutation of the fifth transmembrane Asn198 to Ala resulted in a dramatic decrease of the affinity for histamine binding, and for the histamine-induced polyphosphoinositides breakdown, whereas the affinity towards antagonists was not significantly modified. In addition, mutation of another fifth transmembrane amino acid, Thr194 to Ala also diminished, but to a lesser extent, the affinity for histamine. These data led us to propose a molecular model for histamine interaction with the human H1 receptor. In this model, the amide moiety of Asn198 and the hydroxyl group of Thr194 are involved in hydrogen bonding with the nitrogen atoms of the imidazole ring of histamine. Moreover, mutation of Thr194 to Ala demonstrated that this residue is responsible for the discrimination between enantiomers of cetirizine.

Fexofenadine, the active metabolite of terfenadine, is a selective histamine H1 receptor antagonist that does not cross the blood brain barrier and appears to display some anti-inflammatory properties. Fexofenadine is rapidly absorbed (onset of relief < or = 2 hours) and has a long duration of action, making it suitable for once daily administration. Clinical trials (< or = 2 weeks' duration) have shown fexofenadine 60 mg twice daily and 120 mg once daily to be as effective as loratadine 10 mg once daily, and fexofenadine 120 mg once daily to be as effective as cetirizine 10 mg once daily in the overall reduction of symptoms of seasonal allergic rhinitis. When given in combination, fexofenadine and extended release pseudoephedrine had complementary activity. Fexofenadine was effective in relieving the symptoms of sneezing, rhinorrhoea, itchy nose palate or throat, and itchy, watery, red eyes in patients with seasonal allergic rhinitis. There were often small improvements in nasal congestion that were further improved by pseudoephedrine. Fexofenadine Zetia Drug Info produced greater improvements in quality of life than loratadine to an extent considered to be clinically meaningful, and enhanced patients' quality of life when added to pseudoephedrine treatment. Although no comparative data with other H1 antagonists exist, fexofenadine 180 mg once daily was effective in reducing the symptoms of chronic idiopathic urticaria for up to 6 weeks. Fexofenadine was well tolerated in clinical trials in adults and adolescents and the adverse event profile was similar to placebo in all studies. The most frequently reported adverse event during fexofenadine treatment was headache, which occurred with a similar incidence to that seen in placebo recipients. Fexofenadine does not inhibit cardiac K+ channels and is not associated with prolongation of the corrected QT interval. When given alone or in combination with erythromycin or ketoconazole, it was not associated with any adverse cardiac events in clinical trials. As it does not cross the blood brain barrier, fexofenadine is free of the sedative effects associated with first generation antihistamines, even at dosages of up to 240 mg/day.

People frequently experience whealing and delayed papules from mosquito bites. Various antihistamines have previously been tried for the treatment of this condition. We performed a double-blind, placebo-controlled, cross-over study with levocetirizine 5 mg and matched placebo in 30 adults who were sensitive to mosquito bites. On the third treatment day the subjects received two Aedes aegypti bites on the forearm. The size of Avapro Generic Price the bite lesions and the intensity of pruritus (visual analogue scale) were measured. Bite symptoms could be analysed in 28 subjects at 15 min and in 8 subjects at 24 h. Levocetirizine decreased the size of wheals by 60% (p < 0.001) and accompanying pruritus by 62% (p < 0.001) compared with placebo. The effect of levocetirizine increased in a linear fashion with the size of wheals and was most significant in the subjects with largest bite lesions. Levocetirizine also decreased the size of 24-h bite lesions by 71% (p=0.008) and accompanying pruritus by 56% (p=0.016). These results show that prophylactic levocetirizine 5 mg is an effective treatment for both immediate and delayed mosquito bite symptoms and is especially effective in subjects with large wheals.

The first generation antihistamines, such as diphenhydramine, are fairly potent muscarinic antagonists in addition to being H1 Flagyl Tablets selective antihistamines. The antimuscarinic action is often not desirable since it is in part responsible for the drying of secretions in the airways and the sedative effect. We therefore examined a number of antihistamines for antimuscarinic effects on ion transport by mucus gland cells isolated from the airways of swine. Enzymatically isolated airway mucus gland cells were purified utilizing density gradients and grown in culture on porous inserts (Millicell HA) at an air interface. Cells grown in this manner maintain phenotype and polarity. Transport of ions, as short-circuit current measured under voltage-clamp, was measured in response to acetylcholine (ACh) or histamine applied to the serosal side of the gland cell layers. Concentration-response relationships for ACh or histamine were generated in the presence and absence of various drugs. The potencies against muscarinic receptor activation were estimated using the dose-ratio method of Schild.

Data regarding narrowband ultraviolet B (NB-UVB) phototherapy in patients with chronic urticaria is limited. The aim of this open, controlled study was to determine whether NB-UVB is effective in treating urticaria in combination with antihistamin. A total of 81 patients with chronic urticaria were recruited, 48 of whom were randomized into the NB-UVB plus Cenforce Generic Viagra antihistamine group. The control group (n = 33) received only antihistamine. Patients were assessed using the urticaria activity score and a visual analogue score (VAS). The 2 groups were evaluated at the same time-points: at treatment sessions 10 and 20 and at follow-up 3 months post-treatment. The reduction in urticaria activity score and VAS was statistically significant (p < 0.05 for both groups). When comparing the groups, the mean urticaria activity score was significantly lower in the NB-UVB group at session 10 (22.6 vs. 27.3) and session 20 (17.4 vs. 20.7). Statistically significant differences were also noted in VAS between the 2 groups (p < 0.01) at 3 months post-treatment. We conclude that NB-UVB may be an effective complementary treatment for patients with chronic urticaria.

Classic H(1) histamine receptor (H(1)R) antagonists are non-selective for H(1)R and known to produce drowsiness. Modern antihistamines are more selective for H(1)R, and are ' Buy Viagra Online non-drowsy' presumably due to reduced permeability through the blood-brain barrier. To characterize both histaminergic sleep regulation and the central actions of antihistamines, in the present study we analysed the effect of classic and modern antihistamines on rats' sleep using continuous i.c.v. infusions.

Formalin injected in the knee joint of rats produces concentration-dependent nociception, edema, and plasma leakage (PL). Herein, we investigated the effect of histamine H1 receptor (H1R) antagonists in this model. Articular nociception was inferred from the paw elevation time (PET; seconds) during 1-minute periods of stimulated walking, determined every 5 minutes, throughout a 60-minute experimental session. Edema was evaluated by the increase in articular diameter (AD; mm), and PL was measured by the amount of Evans blue dye in the synovial fluid (PL; μg/mL). Loratadine and cetirizine, given systemically, both increased the PET. None of the treatments changed the AD and PL. Loratadine given locally with formalin increased the PET but was without effect when given in the contralateral knee. Systemic loratadine was also without effect when formalin was coinjected with sodium cromoglycate. Histamine and the selective H1R agonist 2-pyridylethylamine decreased the PET and potentiated morphine spinal analgesia, but did not affect the AD and PL. Cetirizine prevented the antinociceptive effect of the H1R agonist. The N-methyl-D-aspartate/histamine-site agonist tele-methylhistamine coinjected with formalin only increased PET. Serotonin alone had no effect on the PET and increased the AD, and the highest dose increased the PL. When coinjected with formalin, serotonin only caused hypernociception, and the highest dose also increased AD. NAN 190, cyproheptadine, and ondansetron (respectively, 5-HT1, 5-HT2, and 5-HT3 receptor antagonists) decreased the PET without changing Zocor 20mg Tablets the AD or PL. Collectively, these results suggest that in rats, the H1R plays an antinociceptive role within the knee joint, while serotonin receptors play a pronociceptive role.

Nonspecific vasodilatation during iontophoresis is an important confounding factor in experimental pharmacology. In this investigation, we studied the involvement of sensory nerves and histamine-related reactions in causing nonspecific vasodilatation in a model of anodal and cathodal iontophoresis of sodium chloride. Firstly, we applied a mixture of local anesthetic (EMLA) cream to confirm its suppressive effect on nonspecific vasodilatation and to measure its efficacy in three different dosages (duration: 1, 2, and 3 h). We then investigated the role of histamine in nonspecific vasodilatation by giving an oral antihistamine drug (cetirizine) to subjects who had and had not been given EMLA. We found substantial suppression of the nonspecific vasodilatation in all EMLA-treated groups (all dosages) compared with untreated controls (with suppression rates of 60-65%). Dosage had no significant effect. A further suppression of nonspecific vasodilatation was seen after oral cetirizine during anodal and cathodal iontophoresis in both EMLA-treated and untreated groups. The antihistamine effect was most pronounced during anodal iontophoresis. These results suggest a histaminergic increase in perfusion that may be Accutane Pills independent of neurogenic mechanisms and depend on polarity (anode or cathode). Local nerve blocks (EMLA) together with cetirizine may therefore be used to reduce nonspecific vasodilatation in both anodal and cathodal iontophoresis.

Urticaria is a cutaneous syndrome characterized by dermal edema (wheal) and erythema (flare) that blanches with pressure. The lesions typically last less than 24 hours and are usually pruritic. In 1983, Christensen and Maibach summarized the theory behind the use of histamine H1 receptor antagonists (antihistamines) in clinical dermatology. These agents remain the mainstay of treatment for urticaria. This article reviews the medical literature on the effectiveness of antihistamines in urticarial syndromes, including acute, chronic idiopathic and the physical urticarias. Older antihistamines, such as chlorpheniramine and hydroxyzine, are effective in the treatment of urticarias, but they also have marked sedative and anticholinergic effects. Newer nonsedating antihistamines (second-generation antihistamines) have been developed that have reduced adverse effects because they do not cross the blood-brain barrier; these agents (acrivastine, cetirizine, loratadine, mizolastine, fexofenadine, ebastine, azelastine and epinastine) cause significantly less sedation and psychomotor impairment than their older counterparts. A review of the literature reveals that there are few studies which document the efficacy of second-generation antihistamines in the treatment of acute urticaria, a biologic entity that usually resolves within 3 weeks. We did not identify controlled studies that suggested superiority of any antihistamine in the treatment of acute urticaria. Loratadine or cetirizine, and possibly mizolastine, appear to be treatments of choice for chronic idiopathic urticaria. For symptomatic dermatographism, the combination of an antihistamine and an H2 antagonist, e.g. chlorpheniramine and cimetidine, appears to be effective. Very few studies have been conducted on the use of antihistamines in the treatment of cold, cholinergic, and pressure urticaria. Antihistamines are the mainstay of urticarial therapy. This evidence-based review suggests that there are efficacy differences between newer, nonsedating antihistamines and older agents in some forms of the disorder. Clearly, further well-controlled clinical trials in larger numbers of patients are needed to clarify the role of these agents in the treatment of urticaria.

Chronic urticaria (CU) involves release of histamine from mast cells and/or basophils, which in turn promotes the classic inflammatory cascade. The resultant symptoms can severely impact sufferers' quality of life and in severe cases prevent them from leading a normal existence, with consequent burdens on family and society. Rapid initiation of effective reliable therapy is important in combating CU, together with avoidance of triggers or exacerbating factors, if known. While newer immunologically-based therapies are beginning to be developed, antihistamines remain a cornerstone of effective therapy. Treatment should be tailored to individual patient circumstances, but in principle the choice of antihistamine component should be governed by the availability of evidence of rapid and prolonged efficacy specifically in CU and evidence of good tolerability and safety. Increasingly, evidence of beneficial effects on patient quality of life is also required for rational selection of an antihistamine from amongst those available. Levocetirizine is a new single-isomer antihistamine with a proven efficacy on chronic urticaria as documented in two recent clinical studies, which have included effectiveness and quality of life assessments.

In some patients, symptoms of allergic rhinitis can be severe and therefore rapid relief is required. There are many treatment options for allergic rhinitis but histamine H1 blockers and topical corticosteroids represent the first-line treatment. Although the latter drugs are usually very effective on nasal symptoms, their onset of action is around 24 h. Thus drugs that are more rapidly effective are of interest. Recently 400 French specialists (in Allergy, ENT and Pneumology) met together to define the criteria for selecting a drug for the treatment of rhinitis. Twelve criteria were proposed and rapid onset of action (less than 24 h) was among the foremost designated criteria. In the first trial, a comparison of mizolastine (10 mg once daily [od]) with cetirizine (10 mg od) and placebo was carried out in the management of seasonal allergic rhino-conjunctivitis (SAR) with special focus on onset of action. A total of 375 patients were included in this European multicentric, randomized, parallel group and placebo-controlled study. By comparison to placebo, both cetirizine and mizolastine reduced significantly nasal and ocular symptoms during the 28-day follow-up trial. The percentage of responders ranged from 40% in the placebo group to 55% in the mizolastine group and 53% in the cetirizine group. Both active drugs were effective from the first intake with a rapid onset within 2 h. However, mizolastine was more rapidly and more profoundly effective than cetirizine during the first 12 h. A second trial included 257 patients suffering from perennial allergic rhino-conjunctivitis (PAR) in a 4-week double-blind placebo-controlled multicentric study. During the study, patients recorded, using a diary card, ocular and nasal symptoms, including nasal blockage. The mean values of nasal score between day 1, 14 and 28 in the mizolastine group were statistically significantly lower than those in the placebo group. The mean values of ocular score showed a statistical difference in recordings between day 1 and day 14 in favour of the mizolastine group. Mizolastine was an effective drug both in SAR and PAR with a rapid onset of action. Mizolastine relieved symptoms more effectively than cetirizine (SAR) and placebo (SAR and PAR) at the beginning of treatment.

Histamine is a major mediator of the allergic reaction, and histamine H1-receptor antagonists have a long history of clinical efficacy in a variety of allergic disorders. The pathogenesis of allergic disease is complex, involving not only histamine and mast cell-derived tryptase, but also eosinophil and neutrophil derived mediators, cytokines, and intercellular adhesion molecules (ICAM-1). A number of "in vitro" and "in vivo" studies have been performed to assess the clinical effectiveness of antihistamines in inhibiting the allergen-induced inflammatory process in the skin and mucosa. In vitro human studies have shown that high concentration of second generation antihistamines can block inflammatory mediator release from basophils and mast cells, and reduce ICAM-1 expression in epithelial cell lines. In vivo studies have also shown an effect on the allergen-induced inflammatory reaction; both oral and intranasal antihistamines cause a reduction in nasal symptoms and inflammatory cell influx. Analysis of secretory fluids and tissues after challenge indicates that antihistamines interfere with mediator release. Recruitment of inflammatory cells to the site of the allergic insult is also disturbed by antihistamines of second-generation, suggesting that these drugs may inhibit upregulation of molecules involved in cell adhesion and migration, and perhaps they may interfere with the cytokine cascade through their ability of stabilizing mast cells and of limiting the incursion of inflammatory cells. This article reviews available human data on the antiallergic effects of antihistamines.

Allergic rhinitis is a common condition in adults and children and can have a large impact on patients' health and quality of life. The aim of current allergic rhinitis therapies is to treat the subjective symptoms and to improve objective measures of the disease. Of the available treatment options for paediatric allergic rhinitis, the newer oral antihistamines and intranasal corticosteroids are first-line treatments.First-generation antihistamines are associated with unwanted adverse effects such as cardiotoxicity, sedation and impairment of psychomotor function. Despite results from studies using first-generation antihistamines demonstrating impairment of cognitive and academic function in children, many of these agents are still commonly given to patients. The newer antihistamines, developed with the aim of being more specific for the histamine H(1) receptor and of overcoming these adverse effects, are the medication of choice in patients with mild intermittent allergic rhinitis. For children <12 years of age, three newer oral antihistamines are currently available: cetirizine, loratadine and fexofenadine. A lack of adverse effects with these antihistamines has been demonstrated in children using EEG and psychomotor performance tests, and in clinical studies. However, issues of receptor selectivity and the potential for CNS adverse effects still remain, and further studies are warranted.Intranasal corticosteroids are the most effective anti-inflammatory agents used for the treatment of paediatric allergic rhinitis; however, the safety of these compounds remains controversial. The safety implications associated with corticosteroids are long-term, dose-related systemic effects, such as suppression of adrenocortical function, growth and bone metabolism, and the extent of these effects is influenced by a number of factors including corticosteroid type, pharmacokinetic profile, mode of delivery and delivery device. Topical corticosteroids were introduced to reduce the systemic effects seen with the long-term use of oral agents. The intranasal corticosteroids currently available for the treatment of paediatric allergic rhinitis - beclometasone, budesonide, flunisolide, fluticasone propionate, mometasone and triamcinolone - have short half-lives and rapid first-pass hepatic metabolism; however, their pharmacokinetics vary in terms of systemic absorption, potency, binding affinity, lipophilicity, volume of distribution, and half-life. A number of studies - utilising hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis function tests such as plasma cortisol levels, 24-hour urinary-free cortisol tests; stimulation tests with corticotropin (adrenocorticotropic hormone), lypressin, and corticotropin-releasing hormone; and growth assessment studies using knemometry and stadiometry - have indicated that these intranasal corticosteroids are well-tolerated in paediatric patients and do not significantly affect growth. The wealth of clinical data and the recommendations from evidence-based guidelines suggest that both antihistamines and intranasal corticosteroids have good safety profiles in children. Nevertheless, growth should be regularly monitored in children receiving intranasal corticosteroids. Other treatments such as immunotherapy, local chromones and decongestants can also be beneficial in managing paediatric allergic rhinitis, and therapies should be considered on an individual basis.

A previous study showed the inhibitory effects of loratadine on histamine-induced wheal, flare and itch in human skin to be very variable between individuals. It was hypothesised that this variability may have been due to differences in the rates of metabolism of loratadine to its active form, desloratadine. This double blind, crossover study examined the effects of desloratadine in 12 healthy volunteers. Levocetirizine was used as a comparator.
