The pharmacological ablation of capsaicin-sensitive afferents by means of capsaicin desensitization is usually utilized as a first functional criterion to identify substances whose biological effects might involve activation of this type of nerves. We have studied, in guinea pig epithelium-denuded bronchial rings (in the presence of the neutral… CONTINUE READING
