The capsaicin-sensitive innervation of the rat urinary bladder: further studies on mechanisms regulating micturition threshold.

Abstract

The functional role of the capsaicin-sensitive innervation of the rat urinary bladder in regulating micturition has been investigated by means of the transvesical cystometrogram which allows study of the effects of drugs on the various phases of the bladder voiding cycle in urethane-anesthetized rats. Capsaicin desensitization (50-125 mg./kg., 4 to 60 days… (More)
