Department of Pulmonology, Semmelweis University Medical School, Budapest.


Sodium cromoglycate is a widely used drug for the prevention of allergic diseases, especially in bronchial asthma and allergic rhinitis. It inhibits mastocyte degranulation and has a direct effect on inflammatory cells and the bronchial obstructive reflex. The drug prevents the development of bronchial constriction caused by various factors and among others the allergen-induced late allergic reaction as well. Because of its few side-effects it may also be successfully used in childhood bronchial asthma.
