Effect Of Piperine In Patients With Oropharyngeal Dysphagia (FIS 2009_2)
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.

Piperine acts on the oropharyngeal TRPV1, increasing sensory input and the release of substance P. These actions may accelerate the oropharyngeal swallow response, improving the swallowing of dysphagic patients.
