Enantioselective disposition of mdma and its metabolites

Enantiomeric excess and quantification. Pharmacogenetics[ edit ] Pharmacogenetics is a subdivision of pharmacology which focuses on the genetics behind the enzymes and other mechanisms behind the metabolism of substances.

Was it therapeutic, toxic or even lethal to the particular individual that the blood sample was drawn from. Open in new tab Figure 1.

Acknowledgments We thank Armin A. MDMA enantiomers exhibit different pharmacodynamics due to differences in binding affinities to receptor sites. In vivo and in vitro MDMA studies revealed two main metabolic pathways.

MDMA is usually formulated in tablets of its racemate 1: According to a Cochrane reviewwhile there is an association with suicide it is unclear if bupropion was the cause.

The separation factors varied between 1.

Determination of MDMA and Its Three Metabolites in the Rat Perfused Liver

The stereoselectivity of protein binding for each species is reported in Table 2. The reasons for the differences between the two studies are by no means clear, but may be associated with the use of the acid, which requires chemical activation, rather than the acyl chloride.

In this experiment, 0. Admittedly, direct MDMA injection into rat brain failed to reproduce neurotoxic effects seen after systemic administration [ 10 ]. Again, the lack of stereochemically defined authentic standards precluded data interpretation.

In vivo and in vitro MDMA studies revealed two main metabolic pathways. We have developed enantiospecific methods based on capillary gas chromatography GC for the determination of MDMA in plasma and urine. For chiral drugs, especially those with different activities and effects associated with each enantiomer, stereoselectivity in protein binding is an important consideration.

For each of the concentrations assessed, it was observed that the calculated percentages of nonspecific binding all gave negative values Table 1 indicating that MDMA enantiomers do not exhibit nonspecific binding to the walls of the ultrafiltration device. Bars, ranges for enantiomeric composition top and SE for concentrations bottom.

De Boer et al. Introduction 3,4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine MDMA or Ecstasy, is a recreational drug of abuse popular among young people.

As pointed out above, the amines were derivatized using R -MTP chloride as a HCDA, but as a result of the sequence rules, the configurational designation of the chiral center in the acyl MTP moiety changed from R- in the acyl chloride to S- in the amide derivatives.

it is unlikely that the observed stereoselectivity would have a significant effect on MDMA disposition in mice. N. Pizarro, A. Liebaria, S. Cano et al., “Stereochemical analysis of 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine and its main.

Background: Little is known concerning the enantioselective disposition of 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA; ecstasy) in humans.

In addition, the potential of utilizing the stereochemical composition of an analyte in biological media for forensic purposes requires investigation. Mazzucchelli I, Onat FY, Ozkara C, Atakli D, Specchio LM, Neve AL et al.

Changes in the disposition of oxcarbazepine and its metabolites during pregnancy and the puerperium. Epilepsia. Mar;47(3) A high-performance liquid chromatographic method with triple-quadrupole mass spectrometry detection (LC-MS-MS) was developed and validated for the first time for the simultaneous quantification of zopiclone and its metabolites in rat plasma samples.
