The use of antihistamine to retard the growth of fibroblasts derived from human skin, scar, and keloid.


Sixty percent of the fibroblast strains derived from normal skin, scar, and keloid reached elevated growth plateaus when cultured in the presence of histamine. A pharmacologic level of the antihistamine diphenhydramine hydrochloride was able to suppress the stimulation in all the keloid strains that were histamine-sensitive.
