Histamine receptors are involved in supraspinal modulation of pain. In the present study, we investigated the effects of microinjection of histamine H1, H2 and H3 receptor antagonists and agonists into the ventral posteromedial (VPM) nucleus of the thalamus on two models of trigeminal pain. Right and left sides of VPM were implanted with two guide cannulas. Corneal pain was induced by local corneal surface application of hypertonic saline and the number of eye wipes was recorded. The duration of face rubbing, as an orofacial pain measure, was recorded after subcutaneous (s...

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are widely used to treat multiple inflammatory diseases and pain but severe gastric mucosal damage is the worst outcome of NSAID-therapy. Here we report that mitoTEMPO, a mitochondrially targeted superoxide (O2(-)) scavenger protected as well as healed gastric injury induced by diclofenac (DCF), the most commonly used NSAID. Common existing therapy against gastric injury involves suppression of gastric acid secretion by proton pump inhibitors and histamine H2 receptor antagonists; however, dyspepsia, vitamin B12 deficiency and gastric microfloral dysbalance are the major drawbacks of acid suppression...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: It is not clear whether H2-receptor antagonists (H2RAs) reduce the risk of gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding in aspirin users at high risk. We performed a double-blind randomized trial to compare the effects of a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) vs a H2RA antagonist in preventing recurrent upper gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding and ulcers in high-risk aspirin users. METHODS: We studied 270 users of low-dose aspirin (325 mg or less per day) with a history of endoscopically confirmed ulcer bleeding at 8 sites in Hong Kong and Japan...

H1 and H2 histamine receptor antagonists, although developed many decades ago, are still effective for the treatment of allergic and gastric acid-related conditions. This article focuses on novel aspects of the pharmacology and molecular mechanisms of histamine receptors that should be contemplated for optimizing current therapies, repositioning histaminergic ligands for new therapeutic uses, or even including agonists of the histaminergic system in the treatment of different pathologies such as leukemia or neurodegenerative disorders...

Histamine receptor 2 (H2) antagonists are widely used clinically for the control of gastrointestinal symptoms, but also impact immune function. They have been reported to reduce tumor growth in established colon and lung cancer models. Histamine has also been reported to modify populations of myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs). We have examined the impact of the widely used H2 antagonist ranitidine, on both myeloid cell populations and tumor development and spread, in three distinct models of breast cancer that highlight different stages of cancer progression...

PURPOSE: Although endothelium-dependent nitric oxide (NO)-mediated dilation of retinal arterioles has been well described, the role of endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor (EDHF) in the retinal arteriolar response remains unclear. In the current study, we examined the contribution of EDHF to the retinal arteriolar dilation to the inflammatory agent histamine and investigated the signaling mechanisms underlying this vasomotor activity. METHODS: Porcine retinal arterioles were isolated, cannulated, and pressurized without flow for functional study by using video microscopic techniques...

Ipilimumab can induce long-term survival in 20% of patients with metastatic melanoma. Concurrent chronic medications may impact the patient's immune system, possess antimelanoma properties, and potentially affect clinical outcomes. This retrospective study sought to describe the efficacy and toxicity effects of 12 classes of chronic medications in metastatic melanoma patients treated with ipilimumab. A total of 159 adults who received ipilimumab for metastatic melanoma at Mayo Clinic (Rochester, Minnesota, USA) from 1 March 2011 through 31 December 2014 were included...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Histamine seems to act, via H2 receptor, on inflammatory process stimulating interleukin-6 (IL-6) and matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) release. As cimetidine is a H2 receptor antagonist, we hypothesize that this antiulcer drug reduces IL-6, MMP-1 and MMP-9 immunoexpression in the gingiva with induced periodontal disease (PD). To confirm a possible modulatory role of IL-6 on MMPs, the relationship between IL-6/MMP-1 and IL-6/MMP-9 immunoexpression was evaluated...

AIMS: Abnormal intravesical pressure results in a series of pathological changes. We investigated the effects of hydrostatic pressure and muscarinic receptors on the release of inflammatory cytokines in rat and human bladder smooth muscle cells (HBSMCs). METHODS: Animal model of bladder outlet obstruction was induced by urethra ligation. HBSMCs were subjected to elevated hydrostatic pressure and/or acetylcholine (Ach). Macrophage infiltration in the bladder wall was determined by immunohistochemical staining...

OBJECTIVES: Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is common and often treated with proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) or H2-receptor antagonists (H2-RAs). GERD has been associated with exposure of the middle ear to gastric contents, which could cause hearing loss. Treatment of GERD with PPIs and H2-RAs may decrease exposure of the middle ear to gastric acid and decrease the risk of hearing loss. We prospectively investigated the relation between GERD, use of PPIs and H2-RAs, and the risk of hearing loss in 54,883 women in Nurses' Health Study II...

BACKGROUND: Intravenous (IV) proton pump inhibitors (PPI) are the standard medical treatment in acute nonvariceal upper gastrointestinal bleeding (ANVGIB). Optimal route of PPI delivery has been questioned. AIM: The aim was to perform a systematic review and network meta-analysis for the endpoints of risk of rebleeding, length of stay (LOS), surgery (ROS), mortality, and total units of blood transfused (UBT) among trials evaluating acid suppressive medications in ANVGIB...

Recent epidemiologic data linking proton pump inhibitor (PPI) use to acute and chronic kidney dysfunction is yet to be validated in other populations, and mechanisms have not been explored. Using a large, well phenotyped inception cohort of 15,063 critically ill patients, we examined the risk of acute kidney injury (AKI), as defined by the Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcomes criteria guidelines, according to prior use of a PPI, histamine-2 receptor antagonist (H2 RA), or neither. A total of 3,725(24.7%) patients reported PPI use prior to admission, while 905(6...

The CXCR4 chemokine receptor is implicated in a number of diseases including HIV infection and cancer development and metastasis. Previous studies have demonstrated that configurationally restricted bis-tetraazamacrocyclic metal complexes are high-affinity CXCR4 antagonists. Here, we present the synthesis of Cu(2+) and Zn(2+) acetate complexes of six cross-bridged tetraazamacrocycles to mimic their coordination interaction with the aspartate side chains known to bind them to CXCR4. X-ray crystal structures for three new Cu(2+) acetate complexes and two new Zn(2+) acetate complexes demonstrate metal-ion-dependent differences in the mode of binding the acetate ligand concomitantly with the requisite cis-V-configured cross-bridged tetraazamacrocyle...
