Social Anxiety in Autistic Adults: Third Subject Treated

On September 20, 2014, the third subject was treated in our new study of MDMA-assisted therapy for social anxiety in adults on the autism spectrum. Comparative studies suggest that autistic adults are at greater risk for lifetime and current psychological disorders, especially social anxiety. This exploratory pilot study in 12 subjects is exploring whether MDMA combined with therapy can enhance functional skills and quality of life in autistic adults with social anxiety, and is being conducted in affiliation with Harbor-UCLA Medical Center and the Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute.
