Generic : Rupatadine
Therapeutic : Rupatadine

Description :

Rupatadine is a long-acting, non-sedative antagonist of histamine H1-receptors. It also antagonizes the platelet-activating factor (PAF). Both histamine and PAF cause bronchoconstriction which leads to an increase in the vascular permeability and act as a mediator in the inflammatory process. With the dual mode of action, Rupatadine shows better therapeutic effect than an isolated antihistamine. Rupatadine possesses other anti-allergic properties such as the inhibition of the degranulation of mast cells induced by immunological and non-immunological stimuli and inhibition of the release of cytokines, particularly of the tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF a) in human mastocytes and monocytes.
