Mechanism :

Histaglobulin is a lyophilised preparation of Histamine coupled with Human Normal Immunoglobulin. Histaglobulin administered subcutaneously induces production of antibody against the histamine-immunoglobulin complex, which binds and inactivates histamine released during allergy. Repeated doses of histaglobulin increase this antibody titer, for which booster doses of histaglobulin were administered every 6 months.

• Eczema

• Allergic Rhinitis

• Bronchial Asthma

• Urticaria

• Atopic Dermatitis


Contraindications :

Hypersensitivity to histaglobulin is a contraindication.

Available as Human normal immunoglobulin (12 mg) and histamine dihydrochloride (0.15 mcg).

3 injections of 12 mg each SC at an interval of 7 days.

May give rise to mild local reactions, fever, chills, malaise.


Interaction :

MMR: Measles, mumps and rubella vaccines should not be given 3 weeks before to 3 months after using this drug, as their efficacy may be reduced.
