 Antihistamine - Bovet's research
Swiss-born Italian pharmacologist Daniel Bovet (1907-; winner of the 1957 Nobel Prize for medicine) of the Pasteur Institute in Paris, France, focused on this problem in 1936.
Bovet could not discover a natural antagonist to histamine, so he looked for substances that were similar in chemical structure to it, to see if they had antagonists that might be modified to work against histamine.
Because the two hormones adrenaline and acetylcholine are structurally similar to histamine, Bovet investigated two groups of substances called sympatholitics and parasympatholitics, which block the effects of adrenaline and acetylcholine.
