Research Cannabinoids Cancer Remission

Quick update on the work the team in Madrid are involved in, by the words of Prof. Guillermo.

We have done in vitro experiments with Glioma initiating cell and have found that the combination of cannabinoids with other anticancer agents [and specifically with inhibitors of the growth factor midkine (MK) and the Anaplasic lymphoma kinase (ALK)] can eliminate these cells. This results could be important since the population of GICs is responsible for the high resistance to conventional therapies that exhibit the patients with Glioblastoma (the most frequent class of brain tumor).

– At the moment we are performing experiments in mice carrying brain tumors to test the effect of the combination of cannabinoids and ALK inhibitors in animal models of glioma and also melanoma.

This year we hope to achieve results that confirm these observations in vitro and in animal models of glioma and also investigate the mechanism of action of cannabinoids in glioma, particularly how activation of autophagy is required for the anticancer activity of cannabinoids.
We are also analyzing the effect of cannabinoid combinations in melanoma models in vitro and also in animal models of melanoma.

(In layman’s words, we expect to find results that support the utilization of cannabinoids in novel therapies to fight glioma and melanoma)

Thank you again for your support and please let us know if you require additional information.

All the best,

Guillermo

News update Biketour 2014

Plans are going well for the 2014 bike tour. We have been busy promoting our great cause to our friends and fans at the Cultiva Hemp Expo in Austria and the Cannafest Expo in the Czech Republic.

We are getting close to reaching our goal of 50 riders for our next adventure, but we still have some places left, so if you want to ride, fill in our rider’s form and join us!

We already have some great sponsors on board who have been very, very generous! We still have some way to go to reach our target for 2014, but everywhere we go people are so supportive. Good vibes!

We still need more sponsors to join us – not just from inside the industry, but from businesses and sympathisers from across the world. Check out ‘Our programme’ to see how we are using the money we have raised so far.

Get a new bike for Christmas and hit the road with us in 2014!
