Changes in Histidine Decarboxylase, Histamine N-Methyltransferase and Histamine Receptors in Neuropsychiatric Disorders

Research output: Contribution to journal/periodicalArticleScientificpeer-review

Abstract

Compared to other monoamine neurotransmitters, information on the association between the histaminergic system and neuropsychiatric disorders is scarce, resulting in a lack of histamine-related treatment for these disorders. The current chapter tries to combine information obtained from genetic studies, neuroimaging, post-mortem human brain studies and cerebrospinal fluid measurements with data from recent clinical trials on histamine receptor agonists and antagonists, with a view to determining the possible role of the histaminergic system in neuropsychiatric disorders and to pave the way for novel histamine-related therapeutic strategies.
