On January 18, 2013, the 12th subject of 24 had their first experimental session in our ongoing study of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for veterans, firefighters, and police officers with chronic, treatment-resistant PTSD. The findings of this study in veterans with war-related trauma will be compared to the findings from our flagship pilot study of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD, which consisted primarily of women survivors of sexual abuse and assault. This study is exploring whether the same treatment method can work for different causes of PTSD, as preliminary data suggests. As of January 30, we had received 388 inquiries about participation in the study, highlighting the extensive demand that exists for more effective treatments for PTSD.
