Pemirolast potassium is an antiallergic agent and mast cell stabilizer. It works by binding the histamine H1 receptor, and blocking the action of endogenous histamine. Pemirolast tablets also inhibit the antigen-induced production of inflammatory mediators such as histamine, leukotriene D4, C4, D4, and E4 from human mast cell cells, preventing occurrence of allergy symptoms.
