Answer

Mast Cell Stabilizers

Mast cell stabilizers inhibit the degeneration of sensitized mast cells when exposed to specific antigens by inhibiting the release of mediators from the mast cells. These agents block calcium ions from entering the mast cell.

Ketotifen, ophthalmic

Ketotifen is an H1-receptor antagonist and mast cell stabilizer. This agent inhibits the release of mediators from cells involved in hypersensitivity reactions.
