“Metabolism of the designer drug 4-bromo-2,5-dimethoxyphenethylamine 2C-B in mice, after acute administration”.
J Chromatogr B Analyt Technol Biomed Life Sci. 2004 Nov 03;811(2):143-52.
4-Bromo-2,5-dimethoxyphenethylamine 2C-B is a psychoactive drug of abuse often sold under the general street name 'Ecstasy'. Recent reports on the abuse of 2C-B and analogues denote the lack of knowledge on this drug metabolism. In the present study, we investigated the metabolic profile of 2C-B in the mouse and found unchanged 2C-B and several metabolites, which could be identified by GC/MS in the mice urine. The identification of 2C-B metabolites may give important clues for the biological and toxicological effects of this drug of abuse and provides new important data for forensic analysis on samples taken from 2C-B abusers.
