It is part of the International Study on Allergies and Asthma in Childhood (ISAAC) a unique, worldwide project set up in 1991 to investigate asthma, rhinitis and eczema in children because of concern that these conditions were increasing in western and developing countries.

antihistamines cross the blood-brain barrier, and in usual doses, they potentially cause sedation and impair cognitive function and psychomotor performance.

However, there could be some potential in looking for more specific drugs that target just the histamine receptors involved in allergy.

Hence they are sometimes also referred to as sedating histamines.
