Background and purpose: To follow up in vitro evidence that D-tetrahydrocannabivarin extracted from cannabis (eD-THCV) is a CB1 receptor antagonist by establishing whether synthetic D -tetrahydrocannabivarin (O-4394) and D-tetrahydrocannabivarin (O-4395) behave as CB1 antagonists in vivo. Experimental approach: O-4394 and O-4395 were compared with eD-THCV(More)
Mutagenesis in S. typhimurium and in vitro induction of DNA single-strand breaks in primary rat hepatocytes (DNA-SSB) have been investigated for two new N-nitroso compounds, mononitrosocaffeidine (MNC) and dinitrosocaffeidine (DNC). Mononitrosamidocaffeidine (MNAC) and tert.-(butyloxy)carbonyl-mononitrosamidocaffeidine (t-BOC-MNAC), both nitrosated(More)
The study describes the kinetics of demethylation of mononitrosocaffeidine (MNC), a new asymmetric N-nitrosamine derived from caffeine. The demethylation of its precursor compound caffeidine was also studied. The results presented here suggest (a) that liver microsomes from fasted rats preferentially demethylate the N-methylnitrosamine group in MNC(More)
8,9-Epoxyhexahydrocannabinol (EHHC)-treated mice showed an inhibition of both humoral and cell-mediated immunity. The hemolytic plaque forming assay was employed to determine both the IgM and IgG antibody response. The effect of EHHC on IgM antibody production was measured in BDG1 male mice given X 10(8) sheep erythrocytes i.p. followed 24 and 48 hours(More)
