The effects of single doses of (-) deprenyl, in comparison to J-508, U-1424, pargyline and clorgyline, on the sexual performance of male rats were tested. (-) Deprenyl (0.25 and 1 mg/kg, respectively) exerted a true, long-lasting aphrodisiac effect, on sexually sluggish male rats, whereas clorgyline, U-1424 and J-508 failed to act similarly. Pargyline facilitated the sexual performance of the rats, but only transiently.
