Analysis of endocannabinoid signaling elements and related proteins in lymphocytes of patients with Dravet syndrome

Dravet syndrome

Key Findings

Cannabidiol (CBD) reduces seizures in childhood epilepsy syndromes including Dravet syndrome (DS). A formulation of CBD has obtained orphan drug designation for these syndromes and clinical trials are currently underway. The mechanism responsible for CBD effects is not known, although it could involve targets sensitive to CBD in other neurological disorders.
