1 We have explored in man the hypothesis that histamine released from dermal mast cells by neurotransmitters from afferent nerves contributes to vasodilatation of the axon reflex. 2 The ability of substance P to release histamine from human skin in vivo, and the effects of a histamine H1‐receptor antagonist on capsaicin‐induced axon reflex flares were studied. 3 Intradermal injections of substance P (50 pmol) produced a weal and flare response which was associated with increased histamine concentration in blood draining the site (mean plasma histamine concentration before injection 0.17 ± 0.02 ng ml−1 (± s.e.mean), concentration one minute after injection 1.26 ± 0.28 ng ml−1, n = 6). 4 Terfenadine, an H1‐receptor antagonist, had no effect on the flare response to intradermal injection of capsaicin at a dose which inhibited by more than 60% the flare response to exogenous histamine and to histamine released from dermal mast cells by substance P. 5 Substance P releases histamine from human skin in vivo. However, whatever the nature of the neurotransmitter released from afferent nerves during the axon reflex, it does not produce vasodilatation through release of histamine from dermal mast cells. Histamine may still contribute to the flare by initiation of the reflex.
