80535-8Methylenedioxyethylamphetamine [Mass/mass] in HairActive

Term Description

Hair analysis provides a longer surveillance window for drug use than other methods because hair retains drugs longer (weeks or months, compared with days detectable in blood or urine). Collecting hair specimens also is less invasive than urine or blood sampling. Drawbacks for hair analysis include expense, and possible environmental contamination of the specimen.

Part Description

LP21172-9   Methylenedioxyethylamphetamine
Methylenedioxyethylamphetamine (MDE) is part of the entactogen substance group which includes methylenedioxymethamphetamine also known as ecstasy. The psychological effects associated with the use of MDE include pleasant emotions, relaxation, peace, contentment, feelings of closeness to others, significant stimulation and hallucinogen-like effects. Autonomic effects of MDE include a rise in cortisol and prolactin, elevated blood pressure and heart rate and a slight rise in body temperature. Some users have delayed adverse effects in the days following MDE ingestion that include depression, lethargy, tension and anxious feelings. Long-term use of MDE can lead to long-term neurotoxicity and death.( http://www.maps.org/research-archive/w3pb/1999/1999_gouzoulis-mayfrank_6011_1.pdf) Source: Regenstrief LOINC
