Capsaicin, an ingredient of red chili pepper, has been shown to suppress the growth of pancreatic cancer. Its role and mechanism of action is currently under extensive investigation. Capsaicin has demonstrated the ability to inhibit the proliferation of pancreatic cancer cells through reactive oxygen species (ROS). The relationship between ROS, antioxidants, and possible pathways for inhibition of pancreatic cancer mediated by capsaicin is discussed in this chapter.
