Eighteen methylenedioxyphenyl (MDP) compounds, including some commonly inhaled by people, were tested for the ability to inhibit rabbit nasal microsomal cytochrome P-450-dependent hexamethylphosphoramide (HMPA) N-demethylase. For comparison, liver microsomes were also used. Nasal cytochrome P-450 from rabbits metabolized MDP compounds...
