A bradykinin (BK)1 receptor antagonist blocks capsaicin-induced ear inflammation in mice.


1. The effect of various peptide antagonists on capsaicin-induced (250 micrograms per ear) ear inflammation has been examined. 2. Co-administration of the substance P (SP) antagonist [D-Pro2,D-Trp7,9]SP at 100 and 300 micrograms per ear with capsaicin markedly attenuated oedema, whereas a vasopressin antagonist was ineffective. 3. Using the same scheme, the… (More)
