A new study published in both journals offers hope for Gastric Cancer treatment with cannabis. The researchers in Korea have uncover that WIN 55,212-2, a synthetic version of the cannabinoid THC that is initiate in cannabis, is antineoplastic. That means it can stop and prevent the growth and development of malignant gastric cancer cells.Study finds cannabis drastically shrinks the aggressive form of Gastric Cancer treatment.
For this study the researchers analysed the effects of WIN 55,212-2 on mice that had been injected with human gastric cancer cells. The gastric cancer cells used in the study were cancer cells that were known to be impenetrable to a commonly used chemotherapy drug called Fluorouracil. The researchers like to see if WIN 55,212-2 was a good alternative to Fluorouracil in Gastric Cancer treatment that are oppose to that chemo drug.
