Homologous passive cutaneous anaphylaxis (PCA) in mice and heterologous PCA induced in rats with mouse IgE

Abstract

A study was made of the effect of anit-histamine, antiserotonin and of different anti-anaphylactic drugs on PCA reactions induced in mice with IgG1 or IgE. Further, using the ability of mouse IgE to sensitize rat mast cells, a comparative study was also made of PCA reactions induced in mice and rats with mouse IgE. Antihistamines produced a partial inhibition of PCA reactions induced in mice with mouse IgG1 or IgE and in rats with mouse IgE whereas antiserotonin inhibited PCA reactions induced in rats with mouse IgE, but had no effect on PCA reactions induced in mice with mouse IgG1 or IgE. The simultaneous use of antihistamine and antiserotonin resulted in a total inhibition of PCA reactions induced in mice with IgG1 and in a marked but not total inhibition of PCA reaction due to IgE; PCA reactions induced in rats with mouse IgE were totally inhibited. Compounds known to change the intracellular level of cyclic AMP were found to have little or no effect on PCA reactions induced in mice with either IgG1 or IgE in spite of producing a complete marked inhibition of PCA reactions induced with mouse IgE in rats. Diethylcarbamazine or disodium cromoglycate were also very effective inhibitors of rat PCA reactions induced with mouse I...Continue Reading

Anthelmintics (ASM)

Anthelmintics or antihelminthics are a group of antiparasitic drugs that expel parasitic worms (helminths) and other internal parasites from the body by either stunning or killing them and without causing significant damage to the host. Discover the latest research on anthelmintics here.
