Abstract
The results from this contract indicate that the thermogenic effect of theophylline is brought about by blocking the A sub 1 adenosine receptor subtype. A special formulation incorporating a naturally occurring adenosine antagonist and carbohydrates, protein, and fat, has thus been developed as a prototype towards the eventual development of a "super candy bar" which can be used to combat cold in military operations.
