OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to assess whether endogenous accumulation of adenosine, induced by low-dose dipyridamole infusion, protects from exercise-induced ischemia. BACKGROUND Adenosine is a recognized mediator of ischemic preconditioning in experimental settings. METHODS Ten patients (all men: mean age 63.4 +/- 7.3 years) with chronic… CONTINUE READING
