Previous literature data show that blockade of A(2A) adenosine receptors via selective antagonists induces protection in various models of neurodegenerative diseases. The mechanisms underlying this effect are still largely unknown. Since it is known that excessive reactive astrogliosis is a factor contributing to cell death in diseases characterized by neurodegenerative events, the present study has been aimed at determining whether selective A(2A) receptor antagonists can counteract the… CONTINUE READING
