In the rst part of this work, a perturbative analysis up to one-loop order is carried out to determine the one-loop -function of noncommutative U(1) gauge theory with matter elds in the adjoint representation. In the second part, the conformal anomaly of the same theory is calculated using Fujikawa's path integral method. The value of the one-loop -function calculated in both methods coincides. As it turns out, noncom- mutative QED with matter elds in the adjoint representation is asymptotically free for the number of avor degrees of freedom Nf < 3.
