The effect of varying the dose and frequency of administration of 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA or 'ecstasy') on both the acute hyperthermic response and the long term neurodegeneration of(More)
Rationale: There is good evidence that 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA)-induced neurotoxicity results from free radical formation. However, it is unclear whether it is the presence of MDMA or(More)
1. The pharmacology of the acute hyperthermia that follows 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA, 'ecstasy') administration to rats has been investigated. 2. MDMA (12.5 mg kg(-1) i.p.) produced(More)
1. It has been reported that co-administration of fluoxetine with 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA, 'ecstasy') prevents MDMA-induced degeneration of 5-HT nerve endings in rat brain. The(More)
We examined the long term effect of 3,4 methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA, 10, 20 and 30 mg/kg, i.p.) on the cerebral 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) and dopamine content in Swiss Webster mice. Three(More)
1. We investigated whether dopamine plays a role in the neurodegeneration of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) nerve endings occurring in Dark Agouti rat brain after 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA(More)
1. The immediate effect of administration of 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA or 'ecstasy') on rectal temperature and the effect of putative neuroprotective agents on this change has been(More)
Rationale: 3,4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA, "ecstasy") administration produces neurotoxic degeneration of 5-HT nerve endings in several regions of rat brain. Administration of the GABAmimetic(More)
