Synthetic ACTH1-24 analogue administered in a daily dose of 0.01 mg/kg decreased the number and size of mast cells and increased intracellular serotonin concentration. ACTH1-24 induced degranulation of young mast cells and release of undersulfated heparin. Correlation analysis showed that hormonal imbalance produced by ACTH1-24 was accompanied by redistribution of bioamines.
