Role of the endocannabinoid system in Alzheimer's disease: new perspectives.

Alzheimer's Disease

Key Findings

We have recently reported the existence of profound changes in the location and density of several elements of this system in Alzheimer's disease tissue samples, indicating that a non-neuronal endocannabinoid system is up-regulated in activated glia. Additional data from other groups suggest that glial cells may be important elements in the regulation of endocannabinoid system activity, both in health as in disease.
