For the study, researchers investigated the anti-inflammatory effect of two cannabinoid receptor agonists (meant to mimic the effects of cannabinoids) “in inflammatory experimental model induced by Mycobacterium bovis (BCG).” Mice pretreated with the agonists were induced with “pleurisy or pulmonary inflammation”.
Researchers found that the agonist was able to substantially reduce the inflammation.
“These results suggest that the CB2 receptor may represent a new target for modulating the inflammatory reaction induced by mycobacteria”, the study concludes.
