Possible Interaction: Capsaicin and Erlotinib



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

However, whether capsaicin and erlotinib could induce synergistic cytotoxicity in NSCLC cells through modulating ERCC1 expression is unknown.
Moreover, capsaicin synergistically enhanced the cytotoxicity and cell growth inhibition of erlotinib in NSCLC cells, which were associated with the down-regulation of ERCC1 expression and inactivation of AKT in A549 and H1975 cells.
Together, these results may provide a rationale to combine capsaicin with erlotinib for lung cancer treatment.
