1 Secondly, we examined whether beta-endorphin pre-treatment increased the antigen-induced release of histamine and albumin in nasal lavages and the clinical symptoms. Histamine proopiomelanocortin Homo sapiens
2 However, comparing the antigen-evoked release of mediators into nasal secretions with that of a beta-endorphin pre-treated antigen challenge we could note a significant enhancement of human serum albumin influx (P < 0.05) and histamine liberation (P < 0.05) 10 min after antigen challenge compared with the allergen challenge alone, with also a correlation with the more pronounced decrease in nasal flow (P < 0.05).
