Background and purpose: In 1-methyl-4-phenyl 1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine animal models of ParkinsonÕs disease (PD), caffeine protects neurons by blocking the aden- osine receptor A2A (ADORA2A). Caffeine is primarily metabolized by cytochrome P450 1A2 (CYP1A2). Our objective was to examine whether ADORA2A and CYP1A2 polymorphisms are associated with PD risk or modify the caffeine–PD association.
Methods: ParkinsonÕs Epidemiology and Genetic Associations Studies in the UnitedStates (PEGASUS) included five population-based case–control studies. One labora- tory genotyped four ADORA2A and three CYP1A2 polymorphisms in 1325 PD cases and 1735 age- and sex-matched controls. Information regarding caffeine (coffee)consumption and other lifestyle factors came from structured in-person or telephoneinterviews. Odds ratios (OR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) were estimated usinglogistic regression.
Results: Two ADORA2A polymorphisms were inversely associated with PD risk –rs71651683, a 5¢ variant (adjusted allelic OR = 0.51, 95% CI 0.33–0.80, permutation-adjusted P = 0.015) and rs5996696, a promoter region variant (adjusted OR for ACand CC genotypes compared with the AA wild-type genotype were 0.76 (95% CI 0.57–1.02) and 0.37 (95% CI 0.13–1.01), respectively (permutation-adjusted P fortrend = 0.04). CYP1A2 polymorphisms were not associated with PD risk; however,the coffee–PD association was strongest among subjects homozygous for either vari-ant allele rs762551 (Pinteraction = 0.05) or rs2470890 (Pinteraction = 0.04).
Conclusion: In this consortium study, two ADORA2A polymorphisms were inverselyassociated with PD risk, but there was weak evidence of interaction with coffee con-sumption. In contrast, the coffee–PD association was strongest among slow metabo-lizers of caffeine who were homozygous carriers of the CYP1A2 polymorphisms.

The pooled data 6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP) neurotoxin model of PD included 1325 PD cases and 1735 age- and sex-matched by blocking the adenosine A2A receptor (ADORA2A) [2–5]. Hence, polymorphisms in ADORA2A, the genethat encodes the ADORA2A receptor, might mediate the caffeine–PD association. Caffeine is primarilymetabolized in the body by cytochrome P450 1A2, an Data were collected by structured in-person or tele- enzyme encoded by the gene CYP1A2 [6,7]. Therefore, phone interviews.

WHAT EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW BEFORE HAVING LASIK SURGERY Let us help answer some of the most commonly asked questions ISN’T ALL LASIK THE SAME? No, there are about 140 variations on the Lasik procedure, based upon the equipment used. When the military approved Lasik for astronauts in 2007, they chose iLasik. This represents a specific combination of all-laser equipment, n
