Effect of cannabidiol on disease-associated functions of human vascular smooth muscle cells

Margit Schwartz
Excessive proliferation and migration of VSMC are closely linked to cardiovascular diseases and cancer. The enzyme HO-1 was shown to be involved in anti-proliferative/anti-migratory effects in VSMC. This thesis investigates the effect of CBD on VSMC and HO-1. HO-1 was significantly increased by CBD in an ROS-depentent manner. In addition, inhibition of proliferation and migration of VSMC were observed and not attenuated by inhibition/knockdown of HO-1. This work provides evidence of a CBD-mediated induction of...
