DEA Approves US MDMA/PTSD Relapse Study Protocol; Study Initiation Scheduled

On September 14, 2011, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) notified MAPS that it had approved the Schedule 1 licenses required to transport, store, and administer the MDMA for our new “relapse study” of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared the protocol on May 24 and an Institutional Review Board on June 9. Now that we have received all necessary clearances, we will schedule the study initiation and begin enrolling subjects.
