Possible Interaction: Capsaicin and Sorafenib



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

The synergistic antitumor effects of capsaicin and sorafenib are also addressed.

In LM3 cells, capsaicin and sorafenib combination treatment achieved a markedly stronger induction of apoptosis by increasing caspase-3, Bax and poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase activity and inhibiting Bcl-2, and induction of autophagy by upregulating the levels of beclin-1 and LC3A/B II, enhancing P62 degradation.
In addition, the combination of capsaicin and sorafenib exerted a synergistic inhibitory effect on HCC cell growth.
Taken together, these data confirm that capsaicin and sorafenib combination treatment inhibits the growth, invasion and metastasis of HCC cells and induces autophagy in a synergistic manner, supporting its potential as a therapeutic option for HCC.
The combination of capsaicin and sorafenib also inhibited cell invasion and metastasis via upregulation of E-cadherin and downregulation of N-cadherin, vimentin, matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)2 and MMP9.

By contrast, combining capsaicin and sorafenib significantly enhanced the suppression on cell proliferation, achieving a high-level synergistic effect (inhibition rates over 50%) and promoting HCC cell apoptosis.
In nude mice with PLC/PRF/5 xenografts, combined administration of capsaicin and sorafenib significantly enhanced the suppression on tumor growth without apparent gross toxicity compared to either agent alone.
In this study, we investigated the antitumor effects of combined sorafenib and capsaicin on HCC cells in vitro and xenograft tumors.
Taken together, our results suggest that capsaicin-increased phosphorylation of ERK contributes to the enhanced antitumor activity of sorafenib, and capsaicin may be useful in improving the efficacy of sorafenib for the treatment of HCC.

In the combination treatment using capsaicin and sorafenib , increased apoptosis, followed by the activation of caspase-9 and PARP, was observed.
In this study, we investigated the antitumoral effects of combined treatment using sorafenib and capsaicin in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cells.
In vivo experiments further showed that that the anti-tumor effect of sorafenib was enhanced by its combination with 2.5 mg/Kg of capsaicin.
Overall, these results show that combined treatment with capsaicin and sorafenib might improve sorafenib sensitivity and therefore it represents a promising and attractive strategy for the treatment of HCC.
