A series of N,N′-substituted iminodiacetamide derivatives was synthesized and evaluated their inhibitory effects on the histamine-induced smooth muscle contraction in guinea-pig ileum and on the histamine release from IgE-sensitized RBL-2H3 cells (rat basophilic leukemia cell line). Compounds A3, A4 and A5 which have 1-(4-chlorobenzhydryl) piperazine moiety, showed both moderate antihistamine activity and histamine release inhibitory activity.
