Abstract

Objective: Alzheimer disease (AD) is a progressive, degenerative and irreversible neurological disorder with few therapies available. In search for new potential targets, increasing evidence suggests a role for the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in the regulation of neurodegenerative processes. Methods: We have studied the gene expression status and the epigenetic regulation of ECS components in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) of subjects with late-onset AD (LOAD) and age-matched controls (CT). Results: We found an increase in fatty acid amide hydrolase (faah) gene expression in LOAD subjects (2.30±0.48) when compared to CT (1.00±0.14; *p
