Abstract of Papers Given at the ‘5th Annual Meeting of the European Branch of the Histamine Club’, Paris, 6–8 May 1976

Conclusion

Indeed, this idea is in agreement with (a) data on the turnover rate of HT in neonatal rat brain as compared to adult brain and mast cells [11]; (b) recent histological data demonstrating the presence of mast cells in rat brain [12]; and (c) the ‘in vivo’ effect of compound 48/80 on the levels of HT in P1 of neonatal rat brain [13].
