Clinical and forensic experiences with phencyclidine.

Clinical and forensic experiences with phencyclidine.

    Introduction
    The drug phencyclidine (PCP) has been prevalent on the streets since 1967. Despite this prevalence the literature contains few references to either the methodology [1-3] applicable for analysis in human biologic materials or to concentration of the drug recovered in clinical or forensic situations.
    In light of the profound pharmacologic effects of the drugs as described by Burns et al. [3], it is not surprising that numerous requests are recieved in the laboratory to identify and quantitate the drug. The resulsts are of value in clinical overdose cases, forensic situations in which individuals have been apprehended for erratic behavior on the streets and highways, and finally in post mortem cases in which the drug is implicated either as the prime cause of death or contributory to the cause of death.
