Alimentary pharmacology & therapeutics, 16(7), 1367-1382 (2002-07-30)
Chronic hypergastrinaemia causes gastric enterochromaffin cell proliferation and carcinoid tumours. The only reliable means to diagnose enterochromaffin cell changes/carcinoids is by biopsy. To assess whether serum histamine, chromogranin A or serotonin and urinary N-methylimidazoleacetic acid or 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid correlate with

The determination of the metabolites of histamine, 1-methylhistamine (MHIS) and 1-methylimidazoleacetic acid (MIIA), in human urine is a useful tool for the diagnosis of mastocytosis. MHIS was extracted under basic conditions with chloroform and derivatized with trifluoroacetic acid anhydride, MIIA

Increased basal serum tryptase (bsT) levels are a well-described risk factor for Hymenoptera venom-induced anaphylaxis (HVAn) in patients allergic to Hymenoptera venom. Increased bsT levels might also indicate the presence of mastocytosis. In this study we evaluated whether the risk

Rats with portocaval anastomosis (PCA), an animal model of hepatic encephalopathy (HE), have very high brain histamine concentrations. Our previous studies based on a biochemical approach indicated histamine accumulation in the neuronal compartment. In this study, immunohistochemical evidence is presented

Systemic mastocytosis is characterized by bone marrow involvement, which requires a bone marrow biopsy for diagnostic work-up. We questioned whether bone marrow involvement could be predicted using biochemical markers. We selected patients with various symptoms suggestive of indolent systemic mastocytosis

Risk indicators of indolent systemic mastocytosis (ISM) in adults with clinical suspicion of ISM without accompanying skin lesions [urticaria pigmentosa (UP)] are lacking. This study aimed at creating a decision tree using clinical characteristics, serum tryptase, and the urinary histamine
G D Prell et al.
Journal of neurochemistry, 67(5), 1938-1944 (1996-11-01)
Levels of histamine and its major metabolites in brain, tele-methylhistamine (t-MH) and tele-methylimidazoleacetic acid (t-MIAA), were measured in rat brains up to 12 h after intraperitoneal administration of L-histidine (His), the precursor of histamine. Compared with saline-treated controls, mean levels
Elia Mattarucchi et al.
Biomedical chromatography : BMC, 26(1), 89-94 (2011-04-06)
Asthma is a heterogeneous disorder and one of the most common chronic childhood diseases. An improved characterization of asthma phenotypes would be invaluable for the understanding of the pathogenic mechanisms and the correct treatment of this disease. The aim of
K Hartmann et al.

Mastcytosis is a rare disease characterized by an abnormal increase of mast cells in tissues. The skin is the organ most frequently involved, but mast cells also accumulate in the bone marrow, gastrointestinal tract, lymph nodes, spleen, and liver. Recent
Can urinary N-tele methylimidazoleacetic acid (t-MeImAA) serve as a marker of histaminergic activity in hepatic encephalopathy (HE)?
