Eight male subjects took none or 200 mg fenmetozole 1 hr before drinking a beverage containing none or 50 m/l70 kg ethanol. Tests designed to measure mental and motor performance were administered 2 hr after fenmetozole ingestion. Fenmetozole alone impaired standing steadiness but improved mental performance in one test. Fenmetozole did not antagonize the decrement in performance induced by this amount of ethanol. In combination, the subjective symptoms caused by fenmetozole were additive with…

There was sufficient evidence supporting an association between developmental PBDE exposure and reduced IQ, and the body of evidence was of “moderate” quality for ADHD with “limited” evidence for an association with PBDEs.


Fenmetozole in acute alcohol intoxication in man
Pretreatment with fenmetozole failed to antagonize or attenuate cognitive, perceptual, motor and affective changes associated with acute alcohol intoxication.
Effects of marihuana combined with secobarbital
Object and subjective tests designed to measure mental and motor performance indicated that marihuana impaired stability, hand‐eye coordination, and mental performance and secobarbital had an additive effect on subjective responses and impairment in certain psychomotor performance tests.
Impairment of performance with low doses of marihuana
Analysis of variance revealed a significant linear decrease in stability with increase in dose of THC, and tracking scores with Pursuit Meter demonstrated a significant increase above control for all three doses of THC.
Selective Antagonism of Central Nervous System Depressants by DH-524; A Comparative Study with Bemegride
Data suggest that DH-524 would be more selective and have a wider margin of safety than the commonly used analeptics in the treatment of barbiturate or methaqualone overdose.

The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of DH-524 (2(3,4-dichlorophenoxy)-methyl-2-imidazoline), bemegride, doxapram and d-amphetamine on the narcotic and hypothermic effect of ethanol in mice.
A device for estimating stability of stance in human subjects.
The apparatus was designed for use in testing drugs that may affect static balance when each S is used as his own control, and instability increased in the order of test 1, 2, 3, and 4 with most Ss, but in some, closing the eyes alone had little effect in reducing stability of stance.
