MDMA transiently alters biogenic amines and metabolites in mouse brain and heart.


(+-)-3,4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) (10, 20, and 40 mg/kg) was administered to male CF-1 mice which were sacrificed 3, 6, or 24 hours posttreatment for analysis of brain and cardiac biogenic amines and metabolites. In contrast to reported effects of MDMA in the rat, the highest dose of MDMA transiently elevated mouse brain 5-hydroxytryptamine (5… (More)
