Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The authors report that the in vivo effects of anorectic drugs on brain 5 HT serotonin concentrations are correlated much better with the capacity of these drugs to release 5 HT from platelets in vitro than with their in vitro inhibitory activity on platelet 5 HT uptake.
