What they say: 

A study from the University of California, La Jolla, California, USA shows that “Notch3 signaling promotes the development of pulmonary arterial hypertension.”
This study was published in the 15 November  2009 issue of the journal “Nature Medicine”[the number 1 journal in General Medicine with an I.F of 28.054] by Prof. Thistlethwaite PA, Li X and others.


What we say: 

On the foundation of this interesting finding, Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that: Natural product therapy for pulmonary arterial hypertension: Capsaicin, isolated from Chilli pepper, inhibits the development of pulmonary arterial hypertension via down regulation of its target gene Notch3


Significance of the study:  

Capsaicinby increasing the expression of its target gene, it may decrease the expression of Notch3 and its target gene Hes-5 (Fig.1). 

Figure 1. Mechanistic insights into how Capsaicin inhibits the development of pulmonary hypertension.  Capsaicin, by inhibiting Notch-3 and its target gene Hes-5, functions as an anti-hypertensive agent. 

Thus, pharmacological formulations encompassing “Capsaicin or its analogues, either alone or in combination with other drugs, may be used to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension.
