Ritalin, Benzedrine and Dexedrine do not transform F 1706 rat cells.

Abstract

Ritalin (methylphenidate hydrochloride), Benzedrine (amphetamine sulfate), and Dexedrine (dextroamphetamine sulfate) were examined for oncogenicity using a serial line of Fischer rat embryo cells, which was previously shown to be a sensitive and accurate indicator of chemicals carcinogenic for rodents. At the concentrations tested, none of the 3 drugs induced transformation in Fischer rat embryo cells.
