Herbal Origin of Laminil

The active pharmaceutical ingredient in Laminil, Sodium Cromoglycate or Cromolyn, was discovered in 1965 by Dr. Roger Altounyan. The Armenian-American physician and pharmacologist was, himself, a lifelong asthma sufferer. Altounyan was investigating certain plants and herbs which have bronchodilation properties, when he found khella (Ammi visnaga), which had been used as a muscle relaxant since ancient times in Egypt. He inhaled derivatives of the active ingredient khellin to determine if it could block his asthma attacks. These tests resulted in his discovery of a novel class of compounds that have since entered clinical practice, and are used exclusively in Laminil equine products.
