Nalcrom (sodium cromoglicate)
“Sodium cromoglycate is considered to exert a stabilizing effect upon mast cells capable of releasing mediators. In gastrointestinal disease the release of mediators causes a local inflammation which can either result in gastrointestinal symptoms or may allow absorption of
antigenic material leading to systemic allergic reactions. Sodium cromoglycate has no antihistaminic or anti-inflammatory activity.”
