CB2 Cannabinoid Receptor As Potential Target against Alzheimer's Disease

  title={CB2 Cannabinoid Receptor As Potential Target against Alzheimer's Disease},
  author={Ester As{\'o} and Isidro Ferrer},
  booktitle={Front. Neurosci.},
The CB2 receptor is one of the components of the endogenous cannabinoid system, a complex network of signaling molecules and receptors involved in the homeostatic control of several physiological functions. Accumulated evidence suggests a role for CB2 receptors in Alzheimer's disease (AD) and indicates their potential as a therapeutic target against this neurodegenerative disease. Levels of CB2 receptors are significantly increased in post-mortem AD brains, mainly in microglia surrounding… CONTINUE READING
