Scombroid poisoning--recapitulation on the role of histamine.N Z Med J. 1977 May 25; 85(588):425-7.NZ
The histamine content and the total vagal stimulating activities in various fish samples involved in an outbreak of food poisoning were compared. There was a close correlation between the two levels and there was lack of potentiation between histamine and other non-active fractions. The role of histamine in scombroid poisoning is discussed in the light of these results.
