DSCG and PRD-92-Ea showed tachyphylaxis in the rat PCA test when a large intravenous dose (40 mg/kg of DSCG and 20 mg/kg of PRD-92-Ea) was given 30 min before administering intravenously the expected effective doses at the time of antigen challenge. This predosing led to a marked loss of effectiveness. Cross-reacting tachyphylaxis was also demonstrated in this model. Predosing rats with DSCG led to a great loss of effectiveness of a subsequent expected active dose of PRD-92-Ea and predosing with PRD-92-Ea had the same effect in preventing the antiallergic action of a subsequent dose of DSCG. The Rhesus monkey (Macaca mulatto) did not exhibit this phenomenon of tachyphylaxis. PRD-92-Ea and DSCG were given intravenously 30 min before and the same dose of 20 mg/kg repeated just before Ascaris suum challenge in the Rhesus monkey asthma model with no loss of their expected effectiveness.
