The final session in our Swiss MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) took place on Friday, January 8, 2010. The twelfth and final subject received MDMA in the stage two open label portion of the trial, which means that he had previously received a placebo dose. Two months from this last session will be the final data gathering point in this study. One year from now will be the final date point in the long-term follow of this research.
We are pleased to report that just like our U.S. pilot study there was an excellent safety record. There is no evidence of any harm caused to any of the subjects by administering research grade MDMA in a therapeutic setting. Preliminary data analysis suggests that the research will have statistically significant results in reduction of PTSD symptoms in the subject population.
