    Eur J Pharmacol 530:281-3. 2006
    ..Pretreatment of animals with a histamine H1 receptor antagonist, pyrilamine, blocked histamine induced scratching, but it had little effect on SLIGRL scratching. Our study suggests that PAR2 mediates histamine independent itch...

    ..That is, the model provides a behavioral differentiation between itch and pain in the mouse...

    Pain 144:66-75. 2009
    ..These results suggest the possibility that capsaicin, histamine and cowhage activate common peripheral or central neural mechanisms that mediate pruritic sensations and associated dysesthesias...
