Abstract The aim of the present study was to determine whether dehydroleucodine, xanthatin and 3-benzyloxymethyl-5H-furan-2-one inhibit the activation of human leukemic LAD2 mast cells induced by compound 48/80 or the calcium ionophore A23187. LAD2 cells were preincubated in the presence of test drugs and then challenged with the secretagogues. The present study provides the first evidence in favour of the view that dehydroleucodine and xanthatin inhibit the degranulation of LAD2 cells, acting thus as human mast cell stabilizers. These molecules could be effective in the treatment of human diseases associated with inappropriate mast cell activation.
