Abstract

IN 1947, Jancsó1 put forward the view that histamine is an activator of the reticulo-endothelial system and antihistamine is an inhibitor. Halpern and his co-workers2 carried out investigations on the subject which supported Jancsó's observations. Biozzi3 has reported that antihistamines prevented the absorption of indian ink by endothelial cells.
