The effect of adenosine on the neuromuscular blockade induced by vecuronium and the capacity of neostigmine to reverse this combined blockade were studied in 30 cats on a standard sciatic nerve--tibialis anterior muscle preparation. Adenosine infused to 6 cats at a constant rate (3.9 +/- 1.1 mg/kg/min) to produce a stable 50% reduction of the mean arterial pressure did not affect neuromuscular transmission. At the same 50% reduction of the mean arterial pressure by adenosine or sodium… Expand

New generic approach to the treatment of organophosphate poisoning: adenosine receptor mediated inhibition of ACh-release.
TLDR
It is concluded that adenosine receptor agonists protect acutely soman-poisoned rats without the need of additional treatment with atropine, oxime or diazepam, and prevention of ACh accumulation in this way may be a new generic approach in the treatment of OP-Poisoning. Expand
