The effects of Fujibitol, a remedy for the nasal symptoms of immediate and delayed type allergic reactions were studied. Fujibitol inhibited active systemic anaphylaxis in mice, heterologous passive cutaneous anaphylaxis (PCA) in rats, Masugi's nephritis in rats and delayed type hypersensitivity induced by picryl chloride in mice, but did not affect homologous PCA or immune complex-induced glomerulonephritis in rats. These results suggested that Fujibitol is effective for treatment of allergy-induced inflammation since IgG and type IV allergic reactions were inhibited.
