The effect of mescaline and of 7 mescaline analogs (3,4-dimethoxy- β -phenylethylamine; 3,4-methylenedioxy- β -phenylethylamine; 3,4-methylenedioxy- α -methyl- β -phenylethylamine; 3,4-methylenedioxy- α -ethyl- β -phenylethylamine; 3,4-dimethoxy- α -methyl- β -phenylethylamine; 3,4,5-trimethoxy- α -methyl- β -phenylethylamine; and 3,4-methylenedioxy- N,α -dimethyl- β -phenylethylamine) has been studied in the mouse, rat and guinea pig following ip administration and in the mongrel dog and… Expand
Effects of Salicylate on 3,4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA)-Induced Neurotoxicity in Rats

TLDR
Salicylate, a hydroxyl free-radical-trapping agent, does not protect against MDMA-induced hyperthermia and depletion of 5-HT and 5-HIAA, and these observations suggest that MDMA- induced neurotoxicity may occur mainly through the production of superoxide or other radicals rather than hydroxyyl free radicals. Expand
Acute toxicity and gross behavioral effects of amphetamine, four methoxyamphetamines, and mescaline in rodents, dogs, and monkeys.
TLDR
According to the resulting profiles, DMA, DOM, and DOB had effects most similar to those of MES, whereas PMA had more in common with AMP. Expand
Effects of antihistamines on 3,4‐methylenedioxymethamphetamine‐induced depletion of serotonin in rats
TLDR
CPA attenuated and DIPH had no effect on MDMA‐induced hyperthermia, yet both attenuated the depletion of indoles, whereas PYRI and TRIP potentiated these effects. Expand
Emerging toxicity of 5,6-methylenedioxy-2-aminoindane (MDAI): Pharmacokinetics, behaviour, thermoregulation and LD50 in rats
TLDR
Surprisingly subcutaneous MDAI appears to be more lethal than previously thought and its serotonergic toxicity is likely exacerbated by group housing conditions, which poses greater risks to physical and mental health than recognised hitherto. Expand
A One-Generation Reproductive Toxicity Study of 3,4-Methylenedioxy-N-Methamphetamine (MDMA, Ecstasy), an Amphetamine Derivative, in C57BL/6 Mice
TLDR
Data suggest that MDMA may exert a weak reproductive and developmental toxicity, and the no-observed-adverse-effect level (NOAEL) of MDMA is estimated to be 1.25 mg/kg b.w./d.w., while physical development of F1 mice was not markedly influenced by MDMA treatment. Expand
The Pharmacology and Clinical Pharmacology of 3,4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA, “Ecstasy”)
TLDR
Evidence for the occurrence of MDMA-induced neurotoxic damage in human users remains equivocal, although some biochemical and functional data suggest that damage may occur in the brains of heavy users. Expand
Effects of (±)3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine, (±)3,4-methylenedioxyamphetamine and methamphetamine on temperature and activity in rhesus macaques
TLDR
The objective of this study was to determine the relative thermoregulatory disruption produced by recreational doses of MDMA, MDA and METH in nonhuman primates and highlight physiological risks posed both by recreational use of the amphetamines and by current trials for clinical MDMA use. Expand
Locomotor, discriminative stimulus, and place conditioning effects of MDAI in rodents
TLDR
The effects of MDAI on locomotor activity and drug discrimination were similar to those produced by MDMA, having both psychostimulant-like and hallucinogen-like effects; thus, MDAi may have similar abuse potential as MDMA. Expand
The effect of (R)-HA966 or ACEA 1021 on dexfenfluramine or (S)-MDMA-induced changes in temperature, activity, and neurotoxicity
TLDR
The glycine site-specific N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) antagonist 5-nitro-6,7-dichloro-2,3-quinoxalinedione and ACEA 1021 combined with (S)-MDMA prevented (S)MDMA-induced hyperthermia without causing hypothermia or preventing an (S-MDMA)induced increase in locomotor activity. Expand
The pharmacokinetics and liver metabolism of N-hydroxy-3,4-methylenedioxyamphetamine (N-OH MDA) in rats.
TLDR
Both sets of studies demonstrate the rapid conversion of N-OH MDA to MDA in rats. Expand

3-Methoxy-4 5-methylenedioxy Amphetamine, a New Psychotomimetic Agent
THE establishment of trimethoxyamphetamine (Ib, TMA) as being of greater psychotropic potency than either α-ethyl mescaline (Ic) (ref. 1) or mescaline itself (Ia) (ref. 2) has led to the examinationExpand
A New Hallucinogen: 3,4,5-Trimethoxyphenyl-ß-Aminopropane
1. The structural formula of TMA (trimethoxyamphetamine) lies between those of mescaline and amphetamine. It is nontoxic to humans in doses up to 2.0mgm./kgm. of body weight. In mice it produced noExpand
The comparative psychopharmacology of some mescaline analogues.
TLDR
The final test for any alleged hallucinogenic compound must be, of course, in human volunteers, as one cannot argue directly from rat to man, but the results presented here give an indication of the range of response that may be expected. Expand
The Psychotomimetic Properties of 3,4,5-Trimethoxyamphetamine
TLDR
In the present work, dl-3,4,5-trimethoxyamphetamine was synthesized by the general method of Ramirez and Burger and was chemically identical to that previously described, demonstrating pharmacological similarity and responses found to be parallel in intensity and duration to those described earlier.

Toxicity and effects of increasing doses of mescaline.

TLDR
Mescaline has an analeptic effect against the usual anesthetic dose of pentobarbital but appears to be too toxic to be useful in barbiturate poisoning and may result in a disturbance of adrenergic mechanisms. Expand
The effects of dimethoxyphenylethylamine and mescaline on classical conditioning in rats as measured by the potentiated startle response.
TLDR
The results indicated that both compounds are excitatory in terms of the behavioral parameters investigated, and that drug effects may be dependent upon the form of behavior used in the investigation. Expand
The action of sympathomimetic amines on the isolated heart of the frog.
  • S. Ellis
  • Chemistry, Medicine
  • The Journal of pharmacology and experimental therapeutics
  • 1949
TLDR
Certain characteristics of the actions of these compounds indicate that the mechanism of action differs from that of epinephrine, and Ergot alkaloids, Priscol, 2-(piperidinomethyl)-6-methoxy tetralone and dibenamine are unsatisfactory adrenolytic agents when applied to the frogs heart. Expand
The action of some amines related to adrenaline: methoxy‐phenylisopropylamines
TLDR
The investigation is primarily concerned with certain methoxy derivatives of phenylisopropylamine (benzedrine) rather than with benzedrine itself, and no attempt has been made to discuss the already considerable literature on the latter substance. Expand
The absorption, distribution and urinary excretion of mescaline in the dog.
TLDR
During the first four hours after intravenous administration the concentration of mescaline in the kidney, liver, or spleen is three to six fold higher than in plasma or brain, and the intensity of the signs of the pharmacological action ofmescaline parallels the plasma levels. Expand
The pharmacology of hallucinogens.
TLDR
In the context of the yawning abyss of ignorance and speculation which separates biochemical and behavioural data, the contribution of these few observations on psychotomimetics may be regarded as vanishingly small. Expand
