ABSTRACT
Treatment of immortalized stromal-like and epithelial-like endometriotic cells with capsaicin resulted in inhibition of proliferation in a concentration-dependent manner. In addition, endometriotic cells are more sensitive to capsaicin treatment than immortalized endometrial cells, suggesting that capsaicin may be an admissible drug candidate for treating endometriosis.
