💊 Profile

Adenosine phosphate is an endogenous adenine nucleotide involved in many biological processes. Adenosine monophosphate (AMP) is a vasodilator and has been included in preparations for venous insufficiency, haemorrhoids, and varicose veins. It has also been used in pain and inflammation. Adenosine diphosphate and its disodium salt have also been used. AMP is also used in bronchial challenge tests to assess airway hyper-responsiveness in asthma and other respiratory disorders. Unlike adenosine or adenosine triphosphate (below), adenosine phosphate is not used in supraventricular tachycardias.
