Two cannabinoid receptors, members of the superfamily of G protein coupled receptors (GPCRs), have now been cloned. CB1 receptors (CB1R), the primary target for the psychotropic actions of the phytocannabinoid, THC, are the most abundant receptors in the mammalian brain and presynaptic CB1R activation inhibits neurotransmitter release in the brain and peripheral nerves. Postsynaptic CB1R are also present in a variety of non-neural peripheral tissues and cells, including the vasculature and gut, and activation of these receptors can produce hypotension and regulate emesis and feeding.

These clinically very different types of pulmonary infection and the involvement of RAGE therein will be discussed below. Role of RAGE in pneumonia caused by different pathogens Levels of the high-affinity RAGE ligand, HMGB1, were higher in BAL fluid from patients with pneumonia compared to BAL fluid from healthy controls [17]. In experimentally induced pneumococcal pneumonia, the presence of RAGE was detrimental: Mice lacking RAGE had a better survival rate together with a lower pulmonary bacterial load and decreased dissemination of S.

In 2009, two papers were published in the Journal of Immunology [29] and PLoS ONE [30], studying the impact of CB2R modulation on survival and other parameters in experimental sepsis (cecal ligation and puncture model). Although both groups used CB2R knockout mice, the studies yielded opposite results. Tschöp et al. found that following sepsis, CB2R knockout mice had a higher mortality and the administration of the selective CB2R agonist, GP1a, improved survival of wild-type mice [29]. In contrast, Csoka et al.
