The easily available "legal highs", which are products containing psychoactive substances, such as cathinones, piperazines and synthetic cannabinoids, are abused by adolescents in Poland and in the world as alternatives to classic drugs, such as amphetamines or marijuana. The majority of these potentially dangerous substances are still legal and they are(More)
A development of contemporary analytical methods makes possible to use hairs in toxicological analysis for documentation history of drug administration. An undertaken subject has been illustrated by a suicidal fatal poisoning of 58-year-old man with a neuroleptic drug--levomepromazine. Toxicological analysis carried out by HPLC/APCI/MS, besides of(More)
This study undertook a multiparameter evaluation of the death of a 21-year-old woman known to be an abuser of heroin and cocaine. The toxicological analysis of multiple postmortem specimens such as blood and hair was carried out using liquid chromatography atmospheric pressure chemical ionization tandem mass spectrometry (LC-APCI-MS-MS). The blood specimens(More)
BACKGROUND Parental suspicions that the child may possibly take narcotics may be substantiated by hair analysis, which may not only identify the narcotic abuse profile, but also define the minimum period of narcotic usage. OBJECTIVE A toxicological hair analysis aiming at detecting the presence of amphetamines and cannabinoids in children with cardiac(More)
A detailed procedure for simultaneous analysis of morphine, codeine, 6-monoacetylmorphine, amphetamine, methadone, and its metabolite 2-ethylidene-1,5-dimethyl-3,3-diphenylpyrrolidine (EDDP) in human hair segments by liquid chromatography (LC)-atmospheric pressure chemical ionization (APCI)-tandem mass spectrometry (MS-MS) was established. Hair samples were(More)
Among various alternative materials used in toxicological analysis the most important is hair, in which xenobiotics deposited create a possibility to observe the history of their administration in the period determined by the hair-length. In this paper the authors have tried to outline the course of the application of hair analysis in forensic toxicology(More)
In the paper, the authors present the results of toxicological examinations of blood samples taken from drivers during road check procedures or from perpetrators of traffic road accidents, which--taking into consideration the kind of the determined agents and their concentrations--were compared with the results of medical examinations from blood sampling(More)
The results of a multi-parameter analysis of opiates in the hair of drug users and victims of fatal poisonings with these xenobiotics have been presented. The analysis was carried out with the use of liquid chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry (LC-MS). The article discusses the monitoring of the drug users' adherence to pharmacotherapy and the(More)
Four nonfatal and six fatal cases of opiate use are presented with careful toxicological analysis. Levels of morphine (M), 6-monoacetylmorphine (6-MAM), morphine-6-glucuronide (M6G), and morphine-3-glucuronide (M3G) in blood specimens were measured by the sophisticated method of liquid chromatography (LC)-electrospray ionization (ESI)-tandem mass(More)
The study represents an attempt at employing segmental hair analysis in complex poisonings with xenobiotic mixtures of heroine - cocaine - amphetamines in the context of the cause of death as a consequence of complex interaction mechanisms which occurred prior to death. Two cases of complex poisonings: heroine - cocaine and heroine - cocaine - amphetamines(More)
