Reassessment[edit]

I am reassessing this article to Start-class per request on Wikipedia:WikiProject Pharmacology/Assessment.

This article still needs a bit of work, especially in the way of expansion, before it can be assessed as B-class. It can, however, get some improvements right now that will make it a great Start-class article and help build the groundwork for B-class and GA:

  1. Expand a bit on the lead. Many people will not know DMT is orally inactive and why; jumping straight into "active orally [...] without the aid of MAO inhibitors" may alienate the general audience a bit;
  2. Please add a non-breaking space between numbers and units of measurement (WP:MOSNUM), and remember to italicize scientific names (MoS:T).
  3. The references should, ideally, be moved into footnotes. Diberri's excellent citation builder can help you with formatting. If you don't want footnotes, you could also use the author-date system, but full references listed at the end of the article are a must!
  4. Please capitalize none but the first word in a heading title, unless there are proper nouns in it.

Overall, this article can no longer be considered a stub, but there's still a bit of a way to go before it can reach B-class and GA. Best, Fvasconcellos (t·c) 10:55, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the break down, I'll get to fixing/adding as soon as I get time.--Astavats (talk) 12:57, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

Orally active[edit]

[1] claims it is orally active, whereas http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=WuA4LsWXXWEC says not eg deep google, also [2]

It's worth noting that Dipropyltryptamine is marked as orally inactive. Imgaril (talk) 00:11, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

I think that this book [3] notes there is a contradiction in the literature - but I don't have full access to it.Imgaril (talk) 00:17, 7 October 2011 (UTC)
