Histamine release from mast cells in a piece-meal fashion as demonstrated by mast cells within the ASM bundle in vivo by electron microscopy [27] and in vitro following fibroblastoid differentiation [29, 30] might exert a direct spasmogen effect upon the ASM in asthma.
Additionally, it is well known that breakdown products of red blood cells are vasospastic in nature, and that one likely spasmogen is oxyhemoglobin (oxyHb).
Leukotrienes are potent spasmogens that promote mucous secretion and have primarily been studied with regard to their action on reactive preparations from guineapig and human airways, and guinea-pig ileum (11).
Allergen-induced anaphylactic airway smooth muscle contraction is a widely used in vitro animal model to demonstrate immediate mast cell degranulation and rapid release of spasmogens like histamine and peptidoleukotrienes, causing bronchial contraction (Roquet et al.
The gingerol acts on the common site of contractile process and inhibits the contraction of the endometrial muscles produced by spasmogens such as acetylcholine and histamines (Gilani and Atta-ur-Rahman, 2005).
One might argue that the magnitude of the exercise-induced decrease in [FEV.sub.1] would be inversely related to the increase in Qaw as the vascular clearance of locally released spasmogens would increase with the increase in Qaw.
Although the extracts were used for KCl- and oxytocin- induced uterine contraction, however, the comparison of PGE antispasmodic effect on these spasmogens shows that the effects of the extracts on oxytocin-induced contractions is more potent than on KCl-induced contraction.
