sodium cromoglycate stabilizes the membranes of mast cells exposed to antigens, preventing their degranulation and the release of various chemical mediators, which are biologically active molecules. They are synthesized, stored, and released in mast cells (eg, histamine, kinins), mediate an immediate type I allergic response, or are synthesized after provoked stimulation (eg, prostaglandins, leukotrienes), and mediate a delayed type IV inflammatory response. also a calcium antagonist. Cromoglycan blocks the IgE receptor associated with the calcium channel, thereby blocking the entry of calcium into the cell, which usually occurs after IgE binding.
