Israeli MDMA/PTSD Study Initiated

On July 24, 2011, our new Israeli study of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD was officially initiated. Representatives from Antaea Medical Services, Ltd., the clinical research organization assisting MAPS with managing our Middle East studies, visited the site to finalize documents and provide training to the study staff. The study has all necessary clearances from Israeli regulatory bodies, including the Israeli Ministry of Health and an independent Ethics Committee. We have also submitted the protocol to the U.S. FDA, which is required because we are conducting the study under a U.S. Investigational New Drug application. We expect to begin enrolling Israeli subjects with chronic, treatment-resistant PTSD this Fall.
