Capsaicin treatment inhibits osteopenia and heat hyperalgesia induced by chronic constriction injury to the sciatic nerve in rats.


Chronic constriction injury (CCI) to the rat sciatic nerve results in osteopenia in the affected hind limb. One possible mechanism for this osteopenia is neurogenic inflammation, in which neuropeptides, represented by substance P (SP), are involved. We attempted to determine whether capsaicin treatment, which can deplete SP from nerve terminals, is… (More)
