MAPS received word that the Israeli Ministry of Health has approved our MDMA/PTSD pilot study!! One condition was that the Israeli Anti-Drug Authority write a letter formally indicating support for the protocol, which the Israeli Anti-Drug Authority has done. Now we need to bring the Israeli therapeutic team to the US to observe an MDMA/PTSD session conducted by Dr. Michael and Annie Mithoefer and we need to bring MAPS Clinical Research Monitoring Team to Israel, to set up the Case Report Forms and the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs). Plus we need to arrange to export MDMA to Israel for the study. Once these steps have all been accomplished, the study itself can begin enrolling subjects. We’re anticipating that the study can begin in March 2006.
