The neurotoxic effects of p-chloroamphetamine in rat brain are blocked by prior depletion of serotonin.

Abstract

Systemic administration of p-chloroamphetamine (PCA) causes degeneration of serotonergic (5-HT) axons, but recent data indicate that this drug itself is not neurotoxic when applied directly to 5-HT axons. The present study was designed to test whether the toxic effects of PCA in the brain are dependent on release of endogenous 5-HT and to identify which… (More)
