In the CNS, degranulation of mast cells produces the release of factors such as histamine, heparin, and serotonin that can produce BBB rupture and the extravasation of blood elements to the cerebral parenchyma, situation that facilitates neuroinflammation. Therefore, it is considered that the use of drugs such as sodium cromoglycate represents a strategy to stabilize mast cells [72, 73]. The stabilizing effect of cromoglycate is carried out through the blockade of Ca2+ channels [74] and by the phosphorylation of a 78 kDa protein located around granules of mast cells that regulates the translation of signals between the membrane and the cytoskeleton [75].
