Abstractdl-threo-Methylphenidate is a highly efficacious drug for treating attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) that is currently administered as immediate- or controlled-release and osmotically controlled-released formulations. The drug exists as two enantiomers, d-threo-methylphenidate and l-threo-methylphenidate, with the former having been developed as a medication to treat ADHD in its own right. dl-threo-Methylphenidate undergoes enantioselective metabolism in the liver, which… Expand
The impact of methylphenidate and its enantiomers on dopamine synthesis and metabolism in vitro
TLDR
In vitro investigation of enzyme activity of tyrosine hydroxylase (TH), monoamine oxidase B (MAO-B), catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT), and aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH) in vitro points to the stereoselectivity of the investigated enzymes and pharmacological effects of MPH enantiomers. Expand
Metabolomics of Methylphenidate and Ethylphenidate: Implications in Pharmacological and Toxicological Effects

TLDR
It is expected that knowing the metabolomics of MPH may provide further insights regarding individual contribution for MPH pharmacodynamics and toxicological effects, namely if ethanol is co-consumed. Expand
Methylphenidate transdermal system for the treatment of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
TLDR
MTS demonstrated significant reductions in the core symptoms of ADHD from 2 through 12 h post-application, and was approved by the US FDA in 2006 for the treatment of attention- deficit/hyperactivity disorder. Expand
Pharmacokinetics of methylphenidate after oral administration of immediate and sustained-release preparations in Beagle dogs.
TLDR
The dose rate of the SR formulation used in this study resulted in plasma concentrations that were below effective levels for clinical efficacy, so further studies are required to confirm the suitability of higher dose rates for clinical use. Expand
Methylphenidate and impulsivity: a comparison of effects of methylphenidate enantiomers on delay discounting in rats
TLDR
The present results indicate pharmacologically selective effects in that only drugs prescribed for the treatment of ADHD symptoms decreased a measure of “impulsivity” and that l-MPH likely does not attenuate or enhance the effects of d- MPH in the current delay-discounting task. Expand
A preclinical evaluation of the discriminative and reinforcing properties of lisdexamfetamine in comparison to d -amfetamine, methylphenidate and modafinil
TLDR
Lisdexam Fetamine did not serve as a positive reinforcer in cocaine-trained rats, and although it generalised fully to D-amfetamine, its discriminative effects were markedly influenced by its unusual pharmacokinetics. Expand
Analytical characterization and pharmacological evaluation of the new psychoactive substance 4-fluoromethylphenidate (4F-MPH) and differentiation between the (±)-threo and (±)-erythro diastereomers.
TLDR
The identification and analytical characterization of two powdered 4F-MPH products obtained from an online vendor in 2015 suggest that the psychostimulant properties of (±)-threo-4F- MPs might be more potent in humans than MPH. Expand
Pharmacokinetics of methylphenidate and ritalinic acid in plasma correlations with exhaled breath and oral fluid in healthy volunteers
TLDR
In some subjects, the pharmacologically less active l-threo -enantiomer may contribute to the total plasma methylphenidate concentrations, which might affect how the plasma concentrations of methyl phenidate are interpreted and used for clinical decision making. Expand
Methylphenidate Transdermal System
TLDR
Methylphenidate transdermal system was generally well tolerated in adolescents with ADHD and the vast majority of treatment-emergent adverse events were of mild to moderate severity in both the short-term core trial and the longer-term extension study. Expand
The discriminative stimulus properties of methylphenidate in C57BL/6J mice
TLDR
Preclinical findings provide insight into relative potency, and by extension, efficacy of dl-MPH versus d- MPH doses, as well as the threshold doses needed to produce stimulatory effects of motor activity in B6 mice. Expand

Enantioselective aspects of the disposition of dl-threo-methylphenidate after the administration of a sustained-release formulation to children with attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder.
TLDR
The purpose of this present investigation was to determine whether the levels of methylphenidate were sustained for over a time period of 8 h, and to examine enantioselective aspects of the pharmacokinetics following the ingestion of the sustained-release formulation. Expand

TLDR
The efficacy of the d-isomer was equivalent to the racemic preparation in reducing ADHD symptoms and increasing academic productivity and clinical efficacy was highly correlated with plasma concentrations of d-MPH. Expand
D-methylphenidate and D,L-methylphenidate are not developmental toxicants in rats and rabbits.
TLDR
Rats and rabbits dosed with D,L-MPH exhibited significantly greater incidence of maternal clinical observations at twice the dose of D- MPH, and both compounds were not teratogenic in rats and rabbits at higher exposure levels compared to humans. Expand
Pharmacology of the enantiomers of threo-methylphenidate.
TLDR
Results suggest that synaptic inhibition of catecholaminergic uptake by d-threo-MPH may be involved fundamentally in behavioral and pressor effects of the racemic drug. Expand
Neurobehavioral effects of racemic threo-methylphenidate and its d and l enantiomers in rats
TLDR
In summary, fewer significant FOBs were seen with D- and L-MPH compared to equimolar doses of D,L- MPH and L,MPH, and these results were supported by rota-rod studies. Expand
Methylphenidate Is Stereoselectively Hydrolyzed by Human Carboxylesterase CES1A1
TLDR
CES1A1 is the major enzyme responsible for the first-pass, stereoselective metabolism of methylphenidate, and both enantiomers ofethylphenidate can be fit into the three-dimensional model of CES 1A1 to form productive complexes in the active site. Expand
Toxicokinetic assessment of methylphenidate (Ritalin) enantiomers in pregnant rats and rabbits.
TLDR
In general, for the D-isomer, an over-proportional increase in exposure was observed with increasing doses of MPH racemate, and a slight under-proportionality was detected in exposure with Increasing doses of D,L-MPH. Expand
Chiral drugs: comparison of the pharmacokinetics of [11C]d-threo and l-threo-methylphenidate in the human and baboon brain
TLDR
Results indicate that pharmacological specificity of MP resides entirely in the d-threo isomer and directly show that binding of the l-isomer in human brain is mostly non-specific. Expand
Stereoselective disposition of methylphenidate in children with attention-deficit disorder.

TLDR
The results of this study indicated that MPH appeared to be rapidly absorbed in dogs following oral administration, and the peak concentration was reached within 1-2 h. Expand
