Atopic dermatitis is a chronic inflammatory disease characterized by an impaired epidermal barrier function combined with a chronic Th2-type inflammatory response and an intense pruritus. Here, we used an experimental mouse model for Th2-type contact hypersensitivity (CHS) to fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC) to investigate the potential role of cannabinoid(More)
β-Arrestins participate in G-protein receptor signaling and act as adapter proteins that direct the recruitment, activation, and scaffolding of various cytoplasmic signaling complexes. β-Arrestin 2-deficient (Arrb2(-/-)) mice show decreased T-cell recruitment into allergic lung tissue but increased neutrophil infiltration into wounded skin. Given these(More)
AIM Cannabinoids (CB) like ∆(9)-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) can induce cancer cell apoptosis and inhibit angiogenesis. However, the use of cannabinoids for the treatment of malignant diseases is discussed controversially because of their immunomodulatory effects which can suppress anti-tumor immunity. Here we investigated the role of exogenous and endogenous(More)
