Israeli MDMA/PTSD Study Protocol Awaits Ministry of Health Review

On March 16, 2011, the Israeli Ethics Committee at Beer Ya’akov Mental Hospital submitted the application for our Israeli study of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD to the Israeli Ministry of Health (the Israeli equivalent of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration). The Ministry of Health is now reviewing the protocol, and we anticipate that they will approve it. If that happens we will be able to initiate the study.
