Abstract [en]

The effect of para-chlorophenylalanine (PCPA) on the 5-hydroxy-indoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) content in human cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) has been studied. There was no effect on the CSF-content of 5-HIAA 12, 24 or 48 h after a single dose of PCPA 1 g p.o. Neither was there any effect after 1 g/day during 4 days. The increase of 5-HIAA after administration of probenecid was reduced during treatment with PCPA 1 g/day. This reduction, however, is not due to a diminished production of 5-HIAA by PCPA but probably caused by a pharmacological interaction between probenecid and PCPA since the concentrations of probenecid in CSF were lower during administration of PCPA than without that drug.It is concluded that PCPA in the doses used in this study gives no effects on the CSF-concentrations of 5-HIAA.
