The Cannabidiol Analog PECS-101 Prevents Chemotherapy-Induced Neuropathic Pain via PPARγ Receptors

PECS-101, a new fluorinated CBD analog, could represent a novel therapeutic alternative to prevent mechanical and cold allodynia induced by PTX potentially through the activation of PPARγ in macrophages.

BDNF-TrkB and proBDNF-p75NTR/sortilin signaling pathways are involved in mitochondria-mediated neuronal apoptosis in dorsal root ganglia after sciatic nerve transection.

The proBDNF signaling pathway is a potential novel therapeutic target for reducing sensory neuron and SGC loss following peripheral nerve injury and induced mitochondrial apoptosis in SGCs and sensory neurons in DRG following SNT.

Effect of Pyrazol-3 and MRS2179Against Gliosis in a Rat Model of Cerebral Contusion Injury

Both TRPC3 channel and P2Y1 receptor blockade immediately following injury reduced gliosis in the chronic phase, and groups showed significantly less gliosis than those of the CCI-Control group on postinjury day 28.

Jinmaitong Alleviates Diabetic Neuropathic Pain Through Modulation of NLRP3 Inflammasome and Gasdermin D in Dorsal Root Ganglia of Diabetic Rats

Investigation of the effects of JMT on the activation of NOD-like receptor family pyrin domain-containing 3 (NLRP3) inflammasome and pyroptosis in Dorsal root ganglia of diabetic rats showed that JMT had no effect on blood glucose levels and body weights, but significantly improved MWT and TFL behavior in diabetic rats, and attenuated morphological damage in the DRG tissues.

Effect of Cannabidiol on the Neural Glyoxalase Pathway Function and Longevity of Several C. elegans Strains Including a C. elegans Alzheimer's Disease Model.

It is determined that a limited amount of Cannabidiol can prevent methylglyoxal-mediated cellular damage through enhancement of the neural glyoxalase pathway and extend the lifespan and survival of C. elegans, including a transgenic C. coli strain modeling Alzheimer's disease.

Contribution of the Adenosine 2A Receptor to Behavioral Effects of Tetrahydrocannabinol, Cannabidiol and PECS-101

The hypothesis that CBD and PECS-101 can potentiate the cataleptic effects of THC in a manner consistent with increased endogenous adenosine signaling is supported.

Therapeutic potential of PPARγ natural agonists in liver diseases

This manuscript will probe into the application potential and prospects of PPARγ natural agonists in the therapy of various liver diseases, including inflammation, hepatic fibrosis, non‐alcoholic fatty liver and liver cancer.



Neuroprotection and reduction of glial reaction by cannabidiol treatment after sciatic nerve transection in neonatal rats

The present results show that CBD possesses neuroprotective characteristics that may, in turn, be promising for future clinical use.

Peripheral nerve avulsion injuries as experimental models for adult motoneuron degeneration

Results indicate that the gene transfer of GDNF, BDNF, TGFβ2, and GIF and oral administration of T‐588 may prevent the degeneration of motoneurons in adult humans with motoneuron injury and motor neuron diseases.

Impact of acute inflammation on spinal motoneuron synaptic plasticity following ventral root avulsion

The present findings indicate that CNS inflammation may directly influence synaptic plasticity as well as the stability of neuronal networks, positively influencing the survival of lesioned neurons.

Caspase inhibitors promote the survival of avulsed spinal motoneurons in neonatal rats

The inhibition of caspases effectively rescued avulsed neonatal motoneurons which are died by apoptotic pathway, by contrast, because caspase inhibitors failed to rescue injured mot oneurons in adult animals, their death may occur by a non-apoptotic pathway.

Ventral root avulsion: An experimental model of death of adult motor neurons

A reproducible model of experimental degeneration of adult motor neurons in the rat is proposed and microglia‐specific epitopes and macrophage‐specific markers become particularly intense 7 days postaxotomy and provide additional evidence of active phagocytosis of injured neurons.

Neonatal sciatic nerve transection induces TUNEL labeling of neurons in the rat spinal cord and DRG

It is demonstrated here that spinal motoneurons and sensory dorsal root ganglia neurons become TUNEL-labeled after sciatic nerve transection in neonatal rats, thus indicating that apoptotic mechanisms are involved in the death process.

Motor Recovery and Synaptic Preservation after Ventral Root Avulsion and Repair with a Fibrin Sealant Derived from Snake Venom

The present data suggest that the repair of avulsed roots with snake venom fibrin glue at the exact point of detachment results in neuroprotection and preservation of the synaptic network at the microenvironment of the lesioned motoneurons.
