4,4'-DMAR: Chemistry, Pharmacology and Toxicology of a New Synthetic Stimulant of Abuse

Maurizio Coppola et al. Basic Clin Pharmacol Toxicol.

Abstract

In recent years, the spread of new psychoactive substances has dramatically increased in term of availability of both number of compounds and chemical families. In November 2012, 4,4'-Dimethylaminorex (4,4'-DMAR), a novel synthetic stimulant, was first detected in the Netherlands. Between June 2013 and June 2014, thirty-one deaths associated with the consumption of this new drug have been registered across Europe. In this MiniReview, we have summarized the chemical, pharmacological and toxicological information about this new legal high.
