cromoglycate

A drug used in allergies. It stabilizes the membrane of the mast cells that otherwise release HISTAMINE and other irritating substances when antibodies (IgE) and ALLERGENS (such as pollen grains) react on their surfaces. Brand names are Aerocrom, Cromogen, Hay-crom, Nalcrom, Opticrom, Intal Synchroner, Rynacrom and Rynacrom Spray.
