High concentrations of circulating biogenic catecholamines often exist during the course of several cardiovascular disorders. Additionally, coronary dysfunctions are prominent and frequently related to the ischemic and reperfusion phenomenon (I/R) in the heart, which leads to the release of large...

The adrenaline test for enzymes is a colorimetric enzyme assay based on the quantification of periodate-sensitive reaction products such as 1,2-diols and 1,2-aminoalcohols by back-titration of the oxidant with adrenaline to produce adrenochrome as an easily detectable red product. The...

Working in a psychiatrically innovative environment created by the Government of Saskatchewan, Canada, Abram Hoffer and Humphry F. Osmond enunciated the adrenochrome hypothesis for the biogenesis of schizophrenia in 1952, slightly later proposing and, apparently, demonstrating, in a double-blind study...
