NADH oxidase activity from sera altered by capsaicin is widely distributed among cancer patients.

Abstract

A cancer-specific form of NADH oxidase inhibited or stimulated by 1 or 100 microM capsaicin (8-methyl-N-vanillyl-6-noneamide) is present in sera from cancer patients. The capsaicin-inhibited NADH oxidase activity appears to be absent from sera of individuals free of cancer. The capsaicin-inhibited activity is present both in freshly collected sera and in… (More)
