Fatty acid amide hydrolase deficiency enhances intraplaque neutrophil recruitment in atherosclerotic mice

Publication date2013

Endocannabinoid levels are elevated in human and mouse atherosclerosis, but their causal role is not well understood. Therefore, we studied the involvement of fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH) deficiency, the major enzyme responsible for endocannabinoid anandamide degradation, in atherosclerotic plaque vulnerability.
