The histamine receptors are a class of G protein–coupled receptors which bind histamine as their primary endogenous ligand.
Insomnia, also known as sleeplessness, is a sleep disorder where people have trouble sleeping.
In the field of pharmacology, an inverse agonist is an agent that binds to the same receptor as an agonist but induces a pharmacological response opposite to that agonist.
Mirtazapine, sold under the brand name Remeron among others, is an atypical antidepressant which is used primarily in the treatment of depression.
The phases of clinical research are the steps in which scientists do experiments with a health intervention in an attempt to find enough evidence for a process which would be useful as a medical treatment.
