Pinene cancer,pancreatic cancer in mice via experiment Protective effects of alpha-pinene in mice with cerulein-induced acute pancreatitis Oct 2012
Ingestion Method: intraperitoneal
Intraperitoneal administration of alpha-pinene reduced the pancreatic weight (PW) to body weight (BW) ratio and the serum levels of amylase and lipase. Alpha-pinene treatment also reduced histological damage and myeloperoxidase activity in the pancreas and lungs.
THC,CBD cancer,pancreatic cancer in humans via review Potential Use of Cannabinoids for the Treatment of Pancreatic Cancer. Jan 2019
Action Pathway: CB1,CB2,GPR55
Neutral  Cannabinol receptors have been identified in pancreatic cancer with several studies showing in vitro antiproliferative and proapoptotic effects. Cannabinoids may be an effective adjunct for the treatment of pancreatic cancer. Data on the anticancer effectiveness of various cannabinoid formulations, treatment dosing, precise mode of action, and clinical studies are lacking.
