Abstract:

DURING THE PAST DECADE, MARIJUANA USE HAS INCREASED DRAMATICALLY AT ALL AGE LEVELS. CONCERN FOR HEALTH AND SAFETY HAS RESULTED IN A NEED FOR A LOW-COST, RAPID, AND PORTABLE SYSTEM FOR DETECTION OF CANNABIS COMPONENTS IN URINE AND SALIVA AT SENSITIVITY IN THE LOW NANOGRAM PER ML RANGE, AND WITH HIGH SPECIFICITY. MONOCLONAL ANTIBODIES-BASED ENZYME LINKED IMMUNOSORBENT ASSAY (ELISA) WOULD FILL THESE PARTICULAR NEEDS. PHASE I OF THIS STUDY IS DIRECTED TOWARD THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING TWO TYPES OF HYBRIDOMA CLONES, ONE PRODUCING MONOCLONAL ANTIBODY SPECIFIC TO DELTA-9-TETRAHYDROCANNABINOL (THC) AND THE OTHER SPECIFIC TO 11-NOR-9-CARBOXY-THC, BOTH WITH SENSITIVITY AT LOW TO SUBNANOGRAM RANGE. OUR PHASE II EFFORTS WILL BE DIRECTED TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN ELISA KIT FOR RAPID DETECTION OF THC AND ITS
