“Comparison of the metabolism of 3,4-dimethoxyphenylethylamine and mescaline in humans”. 
Biochem Pharmacol. 1966 Mar 26;15(3):269-73.
3,4-Dimethoxyphenylethylamine, mescaline, and placebo were administered at weekly intervals to eight subjects. More than 77 percent of the 3, 4-dimethoxyphenylethylamine administered was recovered as 3,4-dimethoxyphenylacetic acid. In contrast, mescaline in considerable amount was not recovered as either unmetabolized compound or acid metabolite. The administered mescaline that was recovered was found in somewhat larger measure as unchanged material. A lesser amount was recovered as 3,4,5-trimethoxyphenylacetic acid.
