Mast cells stimulation activates degranulation process resulting in releasing of mediators, such as histamine. In this study, the effect of aqueous extract of sitagliptin, a selective dipeptidylpeptidase-4 inhibitor, on the mast cell-mediated allergic response was studied with the possible mechanisms of action, focusing on the histamine release and pro-inflammatory cytokine secretion in mast cells. Sitagliptin produced dose dependent inhibition in compound 48/80-induced systemic reactions. In addition, sitagliptin attenuated IgE-mediated skin allergic reaction. Sitagliptin dose-dependently reduced compound 48/80- and IgE-induced histamine release from mast cells. Sitagliptin decreased the secretion of pro-inflammatory cytokines, tumor necrosis factor-α, in mast cells. So, the finding of this study provides evidence that sitagliptin inhibits mast cell derived allergic reactions, and involvement of pro-inflammatory cytokine secretion in such effects.
