• chili
  • The Sannam chili is traded as an S4 type chili[citation needed] and is mainly used for its pungency and the extraction and derivation of capsaicin, which is an active component in chilies that gives them their hot qualities. (wikipedia.org)
  • pungent
  • Most of the capsaicin in a pungent (hot) pepper is concentrated in blisters on the epidermis of the interior ribs (septa) that divide the chambers, or locules, of the fruit to which the seeds are attached. (wikipedia.org)
  • A study on capsaicin production in fruits of C. chinense showed that capsaicinoids are produced only in the epidermal cells of the interlocular septa of pungent fruits, that blister formation only occurs as a result of capsaicinoid accumulation, and that pungency and blister formation are controlled by a single locus, Pun1, for which there exist at least two recessive alleles that result in non-pungency of C. chinense fruits.

  • substance
  • The enhancement of cervical ripening is due to activation of primary afferent Cfibers, release of neuropeptides substance P, neurokinin A, calcitonin generelated peptide, secretoneurin and nitric oxide to help orchestrate a series of local inflammatory responses including vasodilation, vascular permeability with tissue edema and protein extravasation, and migration of inflammatory immune cells(3).In a study of pregnant rats, vaginal lidocaine gel was applied followed by capsaicin sham cream.

  • cream
  • We hypothesize that application of lidocaine to the uterine cervix followed by 0.1% capsaicin cream will facilitate cervical ripening and decrease the pain of labor induction when compared to use of a placebo cream. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis patients who received capsaicin cream for painful knees experienced mean reductions in pain of 57% and 33%, respectively, after 4 weeks. (globalhealingcenter.com)
  • A limited number of treatment options exist, including regular application of Capsaicin cream and prolonged relief may be provided by botulinum toxin treatment. (wikipedia.org)
  • Synthetic
  • Qutenza is a synthetic trans-capsaicin and drug delivery is by a rapid-delivery patch application system NeurogesX plans to launch Qutenza in the United States in the first half of November 2010. (wikipedia.org)
  • chemical
  • Capsaicin is a natural chemical derived from plants of the solanaceae family. (headaches.org)
  • Some research has also suggested that capsaicin can also help with appetite suppression, but there are not yet any solid data to determine what role, if any, the chemical plays in weight loss. (go.com)
  • The exact chemical structure of capsaicin was determined by E. K. Nelson in 1919. (globalhealingcenter.com)
  • inflammation
  • Capsaicin is also used by people with the skin disease psoriasis to decrease itching and inflammation, according to the university. (go.com)
  • protein
  • We were wondering if anybody has determined if the osm-9 protein can bind to capsaicin or alternatively, is there any evidence that worms can sense capsaicin? (bio.net)
  • Health
  • You must check to make sure that it is safe for you to take methyl salicylate, menthol, and capsaicin lotion with all of your drugs and health problems. (drugs.com)
  • Taking extra capsaicin orally has no proven health benefit. (healthtap.com)
  • Many health effects have been ascribed to capsaicin and capsinoids, both anecdotally and through scientific study, including anticancer, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic activities, and weight management. (wikipedia.org)
