The aim of this study is to show whether rosuvastatin influences adenosine metabolism. Therefore we will determine whether rosuvasatin increases dipyridamole-induced vasodilation by increased adenosine receptor stimulation.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Basic Science

Adenosine and AMP are substances normally present in the body. Adenosine is also given for the treatment of some heart rhythm problems and may be used to reduce heart damage during heart ...
A study to evaluate the low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) lowering efficacy of the addition of ezetimibe to rosuvastatin compared with doubling dose of rosuvastatin in patients t...
PXL770 is a direct activator of 5' adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase (AMPK) being developed by Poxel S.A. for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). In Part A of ...
Atherosclerotic plaque uptake of 18F-sodium fluoride (NaF) in positron emission tomography with computed tomography (PET-CT) was recently shown to correlate with clinical instability in pa...
The purpose of this study is to obtain data of the coadministration of ezetimibe and rosuvastatin to support the concomitant use of these two drugs in patients requiring additional cholest...
Effects of sartans and low-dose statins on cerebral white matter hyperintensities and cognitive function in older patients with hypertension: a randomized, double-blind and placebo-controlled clinical trial.
Cerebral white matter hyperintensities (WMHs) and cognitive impairment are common in elderly hypertensive patients, and more needs to be learned about their prevention and treatment. Our aim was to in...
Adenosine is a well-characterized endogenous anticonvulsant and seizure terminator of the brain. Through a combination of adenosine receptor-dependent and -independent mechanisms, adenosine affects se...
The concentrations of adenosine may increase under ischemic conditions in the tumor microenvironment, and then it enters the systemic circulation. Adenosine controls cancer progression and responses t...
In vitro metabolism models such as liver microsomes represent an important tool for the development of novel radioligands. Comparability and physiological relevance of in vitro metabolism data critica...
This study explored a new rosuvastatin calcium- and heparin-loaded poly(L-lactide-co-caprolactone) (PLCL) scaffold for covered stents in treating aneurysms. The mechanism of rosuvastatin-induced endot...
An adenine nucleotide containing three phosphate groups esterified to the sugar moiety. In addition to its crucial roles in metabolism adenosine triphosphate is a neurotransmitter.
A nucleoside that is composed of adenine and d-ribose. Adenosine or adenosine derivatives play many important biological roles in addition to being components of DNA and RNA. Adenosine itself is a neurotransmitter.
An enzyme that catalyzes the formation of ADP plus AMP from adenosine plus ATP. It can serve as a salvage mechanism for returning adenosine to nucleic acids. EC 184.108.40.206.
A subclass of adenosine A2 receptors found in LEUKOCYTES, the SPLEEN, the THYMUS and a variety of other tissues. It is generally considered to be a receptor for ADENOSINE that couples to the GS, STIMULATORY G-PROTEIN.
A subclass of adenosine A2 receptors found in the CECUM, the COLON, the BLADDER, and a variety of other tissues. It is generally considered to be a low affinity receptor for ADENOSINE that couples to the GS, STIMULATORY G-PROTEIN.
