“Biochemical implications of ecstasy toxicity”. 
Ann Clin Biochem. 1997 Jul;34(Pt 4):442-5.
Increasing numbers of young people are being admitted to accident and emergency (A&E), departments with complications following the use of the hallucinogenic drug ecstasy (3,4 methylenedioxymethamphetamine; MDMA). Recreational use of ecstasy is associated with a definite morbidity and mortality. We report a case of ecstasy toxicity with severe multiple organ failure, who went on to make a full recovery after prolonged hospitalization. The causes and implications of various biochemical changes and the relevance of serum creatine kinase activity and its isoforms are discussed.
