    Sammanfattning : Anti-inflammatory drugs are a widely used class of therapeutic agents, but the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) is hampered by their gastrointestinal side-effects. Recent reports that cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitors may cause cardiovascular events underline the importance of identifying new therapeutic strategies for the treatment of inflammation. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Anandamide (AEA) is an endogenous fatty acid which activates the same cannabinoid receptors as ∆9-tetrahydrocannabinol, the psychoactive substance in marijuana. In vivo, anandamide exerts a number of actions including effects upon pain and inflammation. LÄS MER

  5. 5. The cellular processing of the endocannabinoid anandamide and its pharmacological manipulation

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Farmakologi och klinisk neurovetenskap

    Författare :Lina Thors; Umeå universitet.; [2009]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Endocannabinoid; anandamide; cellular processing; pain; flavonoids; fatty acid amide hydrolase; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Pharmacological research Pharmacology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Farmakologisk forskning Farmakologi; medicinsk farmakologi; Medical Pharmacology;

    Sammanfattning : Anandamide (arachidonoyl ethanolamide, AEA) and 2-arachidonoyl glycerol (2-AG) exert most of their actions by binding to cannabinoid receptors. The effects of the endocannabinoids are short-lived due to rapid cellular accumulation and metabolism, for AEA, primarily by the enzymes fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH). LÄS MER
