  • Transient receptor potential vanilloid receptor subtype 1 in painful bladder syndrome and its correlation with pain.
    Mukerji G, Yiangou Y,
    Agarwal SK, Anand P. J Urol 2006;176:797-801
    • study from the United Kingdom showing increased transient receptor potential vanilloid receptor subtype 1 in nerve fibers of the bladder in painful bladder syndrome and a correlation of the pain score with the relative density of transient receptor potential vanilloid receptor subtype 1 nerve fibers
    • the authors conclude that transient receptor potential vanilloid receptor subtype 1 may have a role in the pathophysiology of painful bladder syndrome and it is a potential target for novel therapeutic agents
