Anti-Inflammatory and Osteoprotective Effects of Cannabinoid-2 Receptor Agonist Hu-308 in a Rat Model of Lipopolysaccharide-Induced Periodontitis.

“Anti-inflammatory and immunological properties of cannabinoids have been reported in several tissues.

Also, cannabinoid receptors type 2 (CB2) were reported to be expressed in osteoblast and osteoclast, suggesting a key role in bone metabolism.

The aim of the present study was to assess the effect of the treatment with the cannabinoid-2 receptor agonist HU-308 in the oral health of rats subjected to lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced periodontitis.

This study demonstrates the anti-inflammatory, osteoprotective and pro-homeostatic effects of HU-308 in oral tissues of rats with LPS-induced periodontitis.”
