High impact information on Metamfetamine

  • CONCLUSIONS: This evidence suggests that the duplication might have a role in regulating the expression of the DRD4 gene and provides an understanding of the biological mechanisms underlying the etiology of neuropsychiatric disorders such as ADHD, schizophrenia, and metamphetamine abuse [12].
  • However, the area under the serum concentration-time curve (AUC) values of l-methamphetamine were, on average, 46% higher (P = .01) in poor metabolizers than in extensive metabolizers [13].
  • In contrast, l-methamphetamine, the major metabolite of l-deprenyl, as well as the baseline drug, cocaine, maintained high rates of intravenous self-administration behavior [14].
  • To address this possibility, we examined the effects of MPTP or METH in mice lacking genes encoding IL-6, CCL2 or TNF receptor (TNFR)1/2 [15].
  • RESULTS: Detection limits in whole blood for morphine, D-methamphetamine, nordiazepam, benzoylecgonine, nordiazepam, PCP, and L-11-nor-9-carboxy-delta9-THC were 3, 2, <4, 5, 25, and 3 microg/L, respectively, for the STC ELISAs [16].
