Previous studies have shown that BD1008 (N-[2-(3,4-dichlorophenyl)ethyl]-N-methyl-2-(1-pyrrolidinyl)ethylamine) and related analogs attenuate the toxicity and stimulant effects of cocaine through antagonism of sigma receptors. In the present study, six analogs of BD1008 (UMB 98-103) were synthesized and evaluated in receptor binding and behavioral studies.(More)
Both dopamine uptake inhibitors and sigma(1) receptor antagonists have been implicated as potential pharmacotherapeutics for the treatment of cocaine abuse. While the dopamine uptake inhibitors may share with cocaine neurochemical mechanisms underlying reinforcing properties, sigma(1) antagonists have been shown to attenuate some behavioral actions and(More)
