How to use

In Vitro:

Emedastine difumarate inhibits histamine H2 receptor (Ki=49067 nM) and histamine H3 receptor (Ki=12430 nM). High concentrations of Emedastine difumarate (1 and 10 ng/ml) significantly inhibits type 1 collagen production in normal human dermal fibroblasts. Emedastine difumarate (1, 10, 100, 1000 nM) at concentrations of ≥ 10 nM inhibits CC chemokine-elicited eosinophil migration.

In Vivo:

Emedastine difumarate (0.03, 0.1, 0.3 mg/kg; orally; pretreatment of 30 min) significantly suppresses histamine-induced scratching with 0.1 and 0.3 mg/kg but not 0.03 mg/kg. Pretreatment with Emedastine difumarate (0.03, 0.1, 0.3 mg/kg; orally) significantly inhibits the scratching induced by substance P and leukotriene B. Emedastine difumarate (0.3 mg/kg, p.o.) produces significant inhibition of passive peritoneal anaphylaxis in guinea-pigs. Emedastine difumarate inhibits histamine-induced contractions of isolated ileum (IC50=6.1 nM).
