Leukaemia cells & CB2 Receptor-2005 Aug

In 2005, a study of THC on CB2 receptor‐induced apoptosis of human leukaemia cells.

BACKGROUND: This study has investigated the effects of THC on a panel of leukemic cell lines. CB1-R and CB2-R levels and their role in cytotoxicity have also been studied, as have the effects of THC on the cell cycle, induction of apoptosis, gene expression, and DNA binding. As the action of THC appears to be novel, we went on to investigate the potential interaction with established chemotherapeutic agents.
