Human Pharmacology of the methamphetamine stereoisomers
To help predict the consequences of precursor regulation, we compared the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of the methamphetamine (INN, metamfetamine) stereoisomers.
The pharmacology of cocaethylene in humans following cocaine and ethanol administration.
BACKGROUND Concurrent use of cocaine and alcohol results in formation of a cocaine homolog and metabolite-cocaethylene. METHODS To characterize cocaethylene pharmacology, ten paid volunteerExpand
Buprenorphine and naloxone co-administration in opiate-dependent patients stabilized on sublingual buprenorphine.
Buprenorphine and naloxone sublingual (s.l.) dose formulations may decrease parenteral buprenorphine abuse. We evaluated pharmacologic interactions between 8 mg s.l. buprenorphine combined with 0, 4,Expand

Cocaethylene formation following ethanol and cocaine administration by different routes.
Ethanol alters the hepatic biotransformation of cocaine, resulting in transesterification to a novel active metabolite, cocaethylene. Because of first pass metabolism, oral drug administration mightExpand
Pharmacokinetics and Subjective Effects of Sublingual Buprenorphine, Alone or in Combination with Naloxone
AbstractObjective: Buprenorphine and buprenorphine/naloxone combinations are effective pharmacotherapies for opioid dependence, but doses are considerably greater than analgesic doses. BecauseExpand
