The cannabinoid receptor 1 is involved in renal fibrosis during chronic allograft dysfunction: Proof of concept.

Publication cover image“Chronic allograft dysfunction (CAD), defined as the replacement of functional renal tissue by extracellular matrix proteins, remains the first cause of graft loss.

The aim of our study was to explore the potential role of the cannabinoid receptor 1 (CB1) during CAD.

Overall, our study strongly suggests an involvement of the cannabinoid system in the progression of fibrosis during CAD and indicates the therapeutic potential of CB1 antagonists in this pathology.”
