Long-term hypothermic lung preservation: does adenosine A1 receptor antagonism have a role in ischemic preconditioning protection?


Ischemic preconditioning or phosphodiesterase inhibition improves lung protection during prolonged hypothermic storage. In ischemic preconditioning of cat lungs, adenosine A1 receptor antagonism was suggested as a possible mechanism. Some phosphodiesterase inhibitors (such as theophylline) are also adenosine antagonists; we showed theophylline to be… (More)
