Safety Information
Astemizole Usage And Synthesis
  • DescriptionAstemizole belongs to the second-generation class of non-sedating, non-anticholinergic antihistamines. Its non-sedating properties appear to result from its poor penetration of the blood brain barrier. As a result it shows no potentiation of CNS depressants, including alcohol. Its long half-life allows once-daily dosing.
  • Chemical PropertiesCrystalline Solid
  • OriginatorJanssen (Belgium)
  • UsesNonsedating-type histamine H1-receptor antagonist. Potential for combination therapy with antivancer drugs such as doxorubicin in resistant leukemia. Antihistaminic
  • Usesscabicide
  • DefinitionChEBI: A piperidine compound having a 2-(4-methoxyphenyl)ethyl group at the 1-position and an N-[(4-fluorobenzyl)benzimidazol-2-yl]amino group at the 4-position.
  • brand nameHismanal (Janssen);Alermizol;Astezol;Astol;Histamanal;Novo-nastizol;EISMANAL.
  • World Health Organization (WHO)The first clinically interesting histamine ti-antagonists were introduced in the late forties and early fifties. Several histamine ti-antagonists have a similar cardiac effect to that seen with astemizole and terfenadine. Serious cardiovascular adverse reactions have been reported when used concomitantly with imidazole antifungals and macrolide antibiotics.
  • Biological ActivityOrally active, potent histamine H 1 antagonist (IC 50 = 4 nM) that displays 20-fold, > 250-fold and > 250-fold selectivity over 5-HT, dopamine and muscarinic acetylcholine receptors respectively. Exhibits antimalarial activity in multidrug resistant strains in vitro (IC 50 = 227 - 734 nM). Also potent hERG K + channel blocker (IC 50 = 0.9 nM) that displays cardiotoxicity in vivo .
  • Safety ProfilePoison by subcutaneous andintravenous routes. Moderately toxic by ingestion. Humansystemic effects by ingestion: arrhythmias, coma, nauseaor vomiting, somnolence. When heated to decompositionit emits toxic fumes of F?? and NOx.
