Ketamine is widely used in veterinary medicine. Its medical application in humans is limited to children because in adults it induces severe psychedelic episodes. In recent years, teenagers have abused ketamine as a recreational and "club drug" because of its hallucinogenic and stimulant effects. Ketamine is also misused as a "date-rape" drug (to induce amnesia in unsuspecting victims). Sensitive gas chromatography-mass spectrometry-negative chemical ionization (GC-MS-NCI) and liquid… Expand
Prolonged Ketamine and Norketamine Excretion Profiles in Urine After Chronic Use
TLDR
K Ketamine and its metabolites have a prolonged excretion profile in urine, which requires frequent measurements (at least weekly) to guide abstinence treatment, and further research is needed to develop an algorithm that can differentiate new K use from residual urinary K excretion in urine of chronic daily users.

Current analytical methods used for screening drugs and their metabolites in biological samples from victims of drug-facilitated sexual assault (DFSA) or other vulnerable groups can lack sufficientExpand
Determination of ketamine and norketamine in hair by micropulverized extraction and liquid chromatography-high resolution mass spectrometry.
TLDR
A liquid chromatography-high resolution mass spectrometry method has been developed and validated for the quantification of KT and its main metabolite norketamine (NK) in 2.0mg of hair and gave proof for systemic drug origin. Expand
Ketamine analogues: Comparative toxicokinetic in vitro-in vivo extrapolation and quantification of 2-fluorodeschloroketamine in forensic blood and hair samples.
TLDR
This study reports quantification of 2FDCK in whole blood samples and forensic hair and compares the following toxicokinetic parameters: unbound fraction (fu) and in vitro-in vivo-extrapolation (IVIVE) of hepatic clearance for ketamine, norketamine, 2F DCK, methoxetamine and deschloroketamine to provide a basis for Toxicokinetic understanding of ketamine analogues.

Pharmacokinetics of ketamine and three metabolites in Beagle dogs under sevoflurane vs. medetomidine comedication assessed by enantioselective capillary electrophoresis.
TLDR
In vitro studies showed that medetomidine has an inhibitive effect on the formation of norketamine, which is the first metabolite of ketamine and is also active, and in vivo studies showed an effect onThe formation and elimination of all metabolites. Expand
Chiral separation and determination of ketamine and norketamine in hair by capillary electrophoresis.
TLDR
The method herein showed consists of simple capillary zone electrophoresis (CZE) for the chiral separation of ketamine and its major metabolite, norketamine, in hair specimens in order to investigate ketamine chronic abuse and to discriminate between the type of abused drug, either single enantiomer or racemic drug. Expand
A high throughput approach for determination of dermorphin in human urine using liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry for doping control purposes.
TLDR
Together, the developed methods proved to be efficient for the analysis of dermorphin and metabolite for human doping control purpose and high specificity and robustness were acceptable for the application. Expand
A revised excretion factor for estimating ketamine consumption by wastewater-based epidemiology - Utilising wastewater and seizure data.
TLDR
Systematic review of WBE studies is a suitable approach to refine the excretion factors for substances with inadequate pharmacokinetic data and suggests that the revised ketamine excretion factor is appropriate for estimating ketamine consumption by WBE. Expand
Analysis of forensically relevant drugs in blood and urine by conventional and advanced liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry methods
Summary The present work intended to evaluate the analysis of forensically relevant drugs in blood and urine by conventional and advanced LC-MS/MS methods. Chapter I gives a short review of theExpand
