A naturally occurring cannabinoid could provide hope for pancreatic cancer patients after breakthrough research by Curtin University found it strongly enhanced the effectiveness of the chemotherapy drug Gemcitabine in mice. Scientists at Curtin and Queen Mary University of London tested the impact the naturally occurring cannabinoid 'Cannabidiol' had on the use of Gemcitabine as a treatment for pancreatic cancer
