Influence of chronic caffeine on MDMA-induced behavioral and neuroinflammatory response in mice
Chronic caffeine consumption at low doses exerts anti-inflammatory effects and prevents MDMA-induced neuroinflammation.
Caffeine prevents acute mortality after TBI in rats without increased morbidity
Adenosine A3 receptor as a novel therapeutic target to reduce secondary events and improve neurocognitive functions following traumatic brain injury
The results provide support for the beneficial effects of small molecule A 3 AR agonists to mitigate secondary tissue injury and cognitive impairment following TBI.
Effects of Preinjury and Postinjury Exposure to Caffeine in a Rat Model of Traumatic Brain Injury.
Preexposure of the injured brain to caffeine does not have a major impact on acute and delayed outcome parameters; more importantly, a single acute dose of caffeine after the injury can prevent lethal apnea regardless of chronic caffeine preexposure.
Chronic caffeine exposure attenuates blast-induced memory deficit in mice.
The Many Roles of Adenosine in Traumatic Brain Injury
This work reports increases in brain interstitial adenosine levels in patients with severe TBI during episodes of ischemia, and suggests that the newly discovered 2,3-cyclic AMP pathway represents an important component of the adenosines response to TBI.


A2A Adenosine Receptor Deficiency Attenuates Brain Injury Induced by Transient Focal Ischemia in Mice
It is suggested that A2A receptors play a prominent role in the development of ischemic injury within brain and demonstrate the potential for anatomical and functional neuroprotection against stroke by A 2A receptor antagonists.
The Sodium Channel Blocker and Glutamate Release Inhibitor BW1003C87 and Magnesium Attenuate Regional Cerebral Edema Following Experimental Brain Injury in the Rat
It is suggested that excitatory neurotransmission may play an important role in the pathogenesis of posttraumatic brain edema and that pre‐ or post‐synaptic blockade of glutamate receptor systems may attenuate part of the deleterious sequelae of traumatic brain injury.
The Effect of Long Term Caffeine Treatment on Hypoxic-Ischemic Brain Damage in the Neonate
Low dose caffeine exposure (plasma levels corresponding to umbilical cord plasma in newborns of coffee-consuming mothers) reduced HI brain damage by 30% in 7-d-old rats, and this ameliorating effect could not be accounted for by up-regulation of adenosine receptors.

Caffeine and its metabolites are commonly detected in CSF in patients with severe TBI and in an exploratory assessment are associated with favorable outcome, and it is speculated that caffeine may be neuroprotective by long-term upregulation of adenosine A1 receptors or acute inhibition of A2a receptors.
Caffeine prevents protection in two human models of ischemic preconditioning.
Hyperalgesia, anxiety, and decreased hypoxic neuroprotection in mice lacking the adenosine A1 receptor
A1Rs do not play an essential role during development, and although they significantly influence synaptic activity, they play a nonessential role in normal physiology under pathophysiological conditions, including noxious stimulation and oxygen deficiency, they are important.
Neuroprotection by Caffeine and A2A Adenosine Receptor Inactivation in a Model of Parkinson's Disease
A potential neural basis for the inverse association of caffeine with the development of PD is established and the potential of A(2A) antagonists as a novel treatment for this neurodegenerative disease is enhanced.
