Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The typical symptomatology induced by amphetamine in laboratory animals is dependent not only on the species but also on the strain of the animals employed in the experiments. In different strains of mice the hyperthermic response and the lethality to amphetamine showed extreme variations, from more sensitive strains (Albino Swiss) to more resistant strains (C57 B1/6 and C3H).{A table is presented}.
