Abstract

The efficacy of curcumin and capsaicin in causing regression of pre-established cholesterol gallstones (CGS) was investigated in male mice. After confirming the formation of CGS in 100% of the mice, they were fed on a diet containing 0.5% curcumin or 5 mg% capsaicin for 5 or 10 weeks. 5 weeks feeding of curcumin or capsaicin diet caused a regression of CGS in 45 and 64% of the mice, respectively. 10 weeks feeding caused regression of CGS in 80% of the mice. Biliary cholesterol decreased and phospholipids and bile acids increased with increase in the duration of spice feeding. Feeding of a control diet to the mice bearing CGS neither caused regression of CGS nor influenced biliary lipids significantly.
