Amphetamine Derivatives as Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors
TLDR
This work reviews how structural modifications on the aromatic ring, the amino group and/or the aliphatic side chain of the parent scaffold, modulate the enzyme inhibitory properties of hundreds of amphetamine derivatives. Expand
Para-methoxymethamphetamine (PMMA): A study of risk factors for fatal intoxication with emphasis on metabolite pattern and CYP genetics
TLDR
All fatalities attributed to PMMA had high PMMA blood concentrations compared to non-fatal cases, and a public warning is warranted against use and overdose with illegal ‘‘ecstasy’’ or “‘speed”’ drugs. Expand
Sympathomimetic Toxidromes and Other Pharmacological Causes of Acute Hypertension
TLDR
This manuscript examines the controversial “unopposed alpha” phenomenon which may result from use of beta-adrenergic antagonist in the presence of stimulant toxicity and the clinical entity known as posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome. Expand
Guidance on the clinical management of acute and chronic harms of club drugs and novel psychoactive substances.
TLDR
National guidelines produced by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence determine the wider principles within which treatment and care should be provided within drug services, EDs, primary care, sexual health and mental health services in the UK. Expand
Synthetic Amphetamine Derivatives
Amphetamine derivatives share a common phenylethylamine chemical skeleton that, with subtle structural modifications, can result in a diverse array of drugs capable of producing varied and discreteExpand
Severe paramethoxymethamphetamine (PMMA) and paramethoxyamphetamine (PMA) outbreak in Israel
TLDR
An outbreak of PMMA and PMA poisoning resulting in 24 fatalities, and the post mortem whole blood and urine concentrations of these two compounds, was reported, suggesting PMA was probably the result of PMA metabolism. Expand
The PMMA epidemic in Norway: comparison of fatal and non-fatal intoxications.
TLDR
All fatalities attributed to PMMA had high PMMA blood concentrations compared to non-fatal cases, and a public warning is warranted against use and overdose with illegal "ecstasy" or "speed" drugs. Expand
Behavioral, hyperthermic and pharmacokinetic profile of para-methoxymethamphetamine (PMMA) in rats
TLDR
The behavioral profile of PMMA, its hyperthermic potency and pharmacokinetic profile in rats indicate that PMMA has a similar behavioral profile to stimulants and hallucinogens and that the toxicity might be increased in a crowded environment. Expand
Clinical toxicology of newer recreational drugs
TLDR
The available information on newer synthetic stimulant, entactogenic and hallucinogenic drugs are reviewed, a framework for classification of these drugs based on chemical structure is provided and their pharmacology and clinical toxicology are described. Expand
