Cannabinoids in Gynecological Diseases, Petra Luschnig et al., 2019

Cannabinoids in Gynecological Diseases Petra Luschnig, Rudolf Schicho Medical Cannabis & Cannabinoids, 2019, 2, 14-21 Doi : 10.1159/000499164   Abstract The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a multifunctional homeostatic system involved in many physiological and pathological conditions. The ligands of the ECS are the endocannabinoids, whose actions are mimicked by exogenous cannabinoids, such as phytocannabinoids and synthetic cannabinoids. Responses to the ligands of the ECS are mediated by numerous receptors like the classical cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2) as well as ECS-related receptors, e.g., G protein-coupled receptors 18 and 55 (GPR18 and GPR55), transient receptor potential ion channels, and nuclear peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors. The ECS regulatesalmost all levels of [...]

The Clinical Significance of Endocannabinoids in Endometriosis Pain Management, Jerome Bouaziz et al., 2017

The Clinical Significance of Endocannabinoids in Endometriosis Pain Management Jerome Bouaziz, Alexandra Bar On, Daniel S. Seidman, and David Soriano Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research, 2017, 2, 1, 72-80 DOI : 10.1089/can.2016.0035   Abstract Introduction : Patients with endometriosis often suffer from diffuse and poorly localized severe pain. The current pain management strategies include medical and hormonal therapy, as well as surgery. Medical management of pain is often insufficient and is associated with high rate of recurrence. Better pain management is therefore of urgent need. Methods : Among the various candidates, the endocannabinoid system (ECS) has recently emerged as a relevant pharmacological target for themanagement of endometriosis-related pain. [...]
