Adenosine receptors (ARs) belongs to the family of G-protein coupled receptors (GPCR) that are responsible for the modulation of a wide variety of physiological functions. The ARs are also implicated in many diseases such as cancer, arthritis, cardiovascular and renal diseases. The adenosine A3 receptor (A3AR) has emerged as a potential drug target for the progress of new and effective therapeutic agents for the treatment of various pathological conditions. This receptor’s involvement in many diseases and its validity as a target has been established by many studies. Both agonists and antagonists of A3AR have been extensively investigated in the last decade with the goal of developing novel drugs for treating diseases related to immune disorders, inflammation, cancer, and others. In this review, we shall focus on the medicinal chemistry of A3AR ligands, exploring the diverse chemical classes that have been projected as future leading drug candidates. Also, the recent advances in the therapeuetic applications of A3AR ligands are highlighted.

Keywords: Adenosine receptor, adenosine a3 receptor, bioactive heterocycles, immune disorders, anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective.
