Intestinal contribution to the presystemic elimination of beta-phenethylamine in the rat

The Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology
P J Worland, K F Ilett


The metabolism of beta-phenethylamine (PEA) has been investigated in intestinal, liver and lung homogenates from the rat. Metabolic activity was ranked liver much greater than lung much greater than duodenum greater than jejunum greater than ileum greater than colon. Absorption and metabolism of PEA was also studied using in-situ intestinal loops from rats. Absorption of PEA appeared to be a passively mediated process with metabolism occurring in jejunum, ileum and colon. When isolated loops of jejunum were used, phenylacetic acid was the only metabolite formed. Presystemic elimination of PEA in anaesthetized rats, was largely attributable to the intestine and lung with a relatively small hepatic contribution.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Separation Anxiety

Separation anxiety is a type of anxiety disorder that involves excessive distress and anxiety with separation. This may include separation from places or people to which they have a strong emotional connection with. It often affects children more than adults. Here is the latest research on separation anxiety.

KIF1A Associated Neurological Disorder

KIF1A associated neurological disorder (KAND) is a rare neurodegenerative condition caused by mutations in the KIF1A gene. KAND may present with a wide range and severity of symptoms including stiff or weak leg muscles, low muscle tone, a lack of muscle coordination and balance, and intellectual disability.
