Structure-Activity Relationships of Several Amphetamine Drugs in Man
In this chapter we shall consider a series of amphetamine studies in man which were conducted at the Addiction Research Center by several investigators. A reason these studies were done was to develop and validate methods that will predict the abuse potential of amphetamine congeners. Another reason was to understand amphetamine “euphoria” in terms of phenethylamine structure.
