In recent years, a number of companies, universities and other institutions have invested in research on new molecules acting as agonists, antagonists and enhancers on A1 adenosine receptors (ARs) and in the evaluation of their new therapeutic applications. Objective: To review recent patenting activity on this topic. Methods: The first part of this article describes the compounds patented, subdivided by functional activity, and the second part the most relevant therapeutic applications or new uses for A1 AR ligands, with a focus on compounds in or soon to be in clinical trials. Conclusion: Although a number of potential therapeutic applications are proposed in the recent literature, at present, in the authors’ opinion, very few A1 ligands are close to coming on the market, probably due to limited selectivity towards the target tissue or organ.
