Capsaicin desensitization was used as a tool to reveal the role of neurogenic inflammation in the gastric mucosal lesions induced by intragastric application of four different noxious chemical agents (96% ethanol, 0.6 M HCl, 0.2 M NaOH, 25% NaCl). In capsaicin desensitized rats the number of lesions did not differ from that of the controls one hour after… CONTINUE READING
