Comparison of Caffeine and d-amphetamine in Cocaine-Dependent Subjects: Differential Outcomes on Subjective and Cardiovascular Effects, Reward Learning, and Salivary Paraxanthine
The preliminary data raise the possibility that adenosine antagonists may affect cocaine-dependent and non-dependent subjects differently, and suggest thatAdenosine modulating drugs may have value in the treatment of stimulant use disorders.

This particular study poses interest in creating molecules similar to THCV as potential dietary drugs, in addition to reducing perceived thermal sensitivity, an attribute that could be utilized in the treatment of burns.
Central nervous system effects of caffeine and adenosine on fatigue.
Testing the hypothesis that blockade of central nervous system (CNS) adenosine receptors may explain the beneficial effect of caffeine on fatigue suggests that caffeine can delay fatigue through CNS mechanisms, at least in part by blocking adenosines receptors.
