delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol inhibits cell contact-dependent cytotoxicity of Bacillus Calmétte-Guérin-activated macrophages.


The effect of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (delta-9-THC), the major psychoactive component of marijuana, on the capacity of Bacillus Calmétte-Guérin (BCG)-activated macrophages to lyse L929 tumor cells, Naegleria fowleri amoebae, and herpes simplex virus-infected cells was examined. Delta-9-THC inhibited tumoricidal and amoebicidal activity in a dose… (More)
