Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects
Istradefylline is an adenosine A2A receptor antagonist [1-2]. It is reported that in animal models istradefylline is able to reverse the motor impairments induced by dopamine depletion or antagonism, however this does not appear to translate to human Parkinson's patients with any significant improvement over placebo or levodopa in Phase 3 trial.
