Comparative studies on behavioral neurochemical effects of N,α-diethylphenethylamine and methamphetamine in rats
The results suggest that NADEP has significant psychostimulatory effects, though the effects were less than those of METH, and NADEP should be carefully monitored to avoid abuse as a psychoactive drug.
Amphetamine-like Neurochemical and Cardiovascular Effects of α-Ethylphenethylamine Analogs Found in Dietary Supplements
The results show that α-ethylphenethylamine analogs are biologically active, and although less potent than amphetamine, they produce cardiovascular effects that could pose risks to humans.
2-Aminoindan and its ring-substituted derivatives interact with plasma membrane monoamine transporters and α2-adrenergic receptors
2-AI is predicted to have (+)-amphetamine-like effects and abuse potential whereas the ring-substituted derivatives may produce 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA)-like effects but with less abuse liability.
Emerging toxicity of 5,6-methylenedioxy-2-aminoindane (MDAI): Pharmacokinetics, behaviour, thermoregulation and LD50 in rats
Structure-Activity Relationships of Substituted Cathinones, with Transporter Binding, Uptake, and Release
Interactions of 20 “bath salt” components with human dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine transporters heterologously expressed in human embryonic kidney 293 cells suggested thresholds of binding/uptake ratios above which compounds were likely to be substrates.
Inhibition of monoamine oxidase (MAO) by α-ethylphenethylamine and N,α-diethylphenethylamine, two compounds related to dietary supplements.

Synthetic Aminoindanes: A Summary of Existing Knowledge
Greater knowledge about aminoindanes is urgently required to decrease risks of fatal intoxication, and appropriate legislation is needed to protect public health without impeding research.
Designer Drug (DD) abuse in Poland; a review of the psychoactive and toxic properties of substances found from seizures of illegal drug products and the legal consequences thereof. Part II--piperazines/piperidines, phenylethylamines, tryptamines and miscellaneous 'others'.
These two articles may help suitable legislation to be rapidly devised to make the prohibition of DDs permanent whenever deemed necessary, as well as providing an up-to-date reference source for those engaged in the DD issue.


(+)-N-methyl-1-(1,3-benzodioxol-5-yl)-2-butanamine as a discriminative stimulus in studies of 3,4-methylenedioxy-methamphetamine-like behavioral activity.
The results support the hypothesis that the primary behavioral activity of MDMA-like compounds is unlike that of hallucinogens and stimulants and may represent the effects of a novel drug class, given the name entactogens.
Preliminary pharmacological evaluation revealed that racemic 2-ADN is approximately one-fourth as potent as (+)-amphetamine as a stimulant in mice.
Conformational requirements for norepinephrine uptake inhibition by phenethylamines in brain synaptosomes. Effects of alpha-alkyl substitution.
Conformational analysis of the alpha-ethyl group inalpha-ethylphenethylamine showed that this group exists in two equally populated conformations in both solvents, and it is suggested that these conformations hinder the approach of amphetamine to the brain synaptosomal NE uptake sites.
Pharmacology of 2-amino-indane hydrochloride (Su-8629): a potent non-narcotic analgesic.
Su-8629 (2-amino-indane) has oral analgesic potency and a therapeutic index comparable to morphine sulfate; it is unlike morphine in that it does not depress respiration and is not antagonized by
