Excretion of Beta-Phenethylamine Is Elevated in Humans After Profound Stress

Excretion of Beta-Phenethylamine Is Elevated in Humans After Profound Stress

M A Paulos et al. Science. .

Abstract

The urinary excretion rate of the endogenous, amphetamine-like substance beta-phenethylamine was markedly elevated in human subjects in association with an initial parachuting experience. The increases were delayed in most subjects and were not correlated with changes in urinary pH or creatinine excretion. The data suggest a stress-related role for beta-phenethylamine.
