Effects of topical capsaicin on autonomic nerves in experimentally-induced nasal hypersensitivity. An immunocytochemical study.

Effects of capsaicin on autonomic nerves in the nasal mucosa and olfactory bulb of toluene diisocyanate sensitized guinea pigs were studied using immunocytochemistry. In the nasal mucosa, substance P ( SP)- and tyrosine hydroxylase (TH)-like immunoreactive (SPI and THI) fibers seemed to decrease after capsaicin application. Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP)-like immunoreactive (CGRPI) fibers did not show obvious alterations. In the olfactory bulb, SPI and CGRPI fibers were few and the effects of capsaicin on those fibers were difficult to evaluate. THI fibers seemed not to be affected by capsaicin. It is suggested that capsaicin affects not only sensory nerves but that it also impacts on THI sympathetic nerves in the nasal mucosa.[1]
