Abstract
The most important finding in this contract is that the effectiveness of theophylline in improving thermogenesis and cold tolerance is via the antagonism of adenosine receptors rather than PDE inhibition. The ultimate goal for our study is to develop the "super candy bar" which could be easily administered to the Canadian military for operation under adverse climatic conditions.
