U.S. Veterans Study: Eighth Subject Screened

On December 1, 2011, the eighth (out of 16) veteran passed in-person screening for participation in our ongoing study of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for U.S. veterans with PTSD. Five subjects have now been enrolled and treated, and have entered the long-term follow-up portion of the study, which will last twelve months following their final experimental treatment session. As of January 9, our clinical team had received 172 inquiries about participation in the study, emphasizing the widespread need among veterans for more effective treatments for PTSD resulting from military service. We are now seeking an additional $250,000 to expand this study from 16 subjects to 24.
