    Birgit Kraft
    Department of Anesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine B, Medical University of Vienna, Austria
    J Pharmacol Exp Ther 315:641-7. 2005
    ..Results of our further experiments suggest that products of the arachidonic acid metabolism are mediators of the cannabinoid-induced enhancement of the respiratory burst reaction of whole-blood PMNs...
  2. doi request reprint Lack of analgesia by oral standardized cannabis extract on acute inflammatory pain and hyperalgesia in volunteers
    Birgit Kraft
    Department of Anesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine A, Medical University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria
    Anesthesiology 109:101-10. 2008
    ..Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the effects of oral cannabis extract in two different human models of acute inflammatory pain and hyperalgesia...
  3. ncbi request reprint Cannabinoid receptor-independent suppression of the superoxide generation of human neutrophils (PMN) by CP55 940, but not by anandamide
    Birgit Kraft
    Department of Anesthesiology, Medical University of Vienna, Waehringer Guertel 18 20, A 1090 Vienna, Austria
    Life Sci 75:969-77. 2004
    ..This inhibitory effect of CP55 940 was not CB-receptor-mediated. In contrast, anandamide and methanandamide did not alter the oxidative microbicidal PMN function...
  4. ncbi request reprint The procoagulatory effects of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol in human platelets
    Engelbert Deusch
    Department of General Anesthesiology and Intensive Care B, Vienna Medical University, General Hospital Vienna, Waehringer Guertel 18 20, A 1090 Vienna, Austria
    Anesth Analg 99:1127-30, table of contents. 2004
    ..However, further in vivo studies are warranted to evaluate the role of cannabinoid receptors in mediating the demonstrated procoagulatory effect of THC...
  5. doi request reprint No carnitine palmitoyltransferase deficiency in skeletal muscle in 18 malignant hyperthermia susceptible individuals
    Thomas Wieser
