U.S. Veterans: 15th Subject Enrolled; Brain Imaging and Heart Rate Sub-Study Starts

On January 29, the 15th subject was enrolled in our ongoing study in 24 U.S. veterans, fire fighters, and police officers with chronic, treatment-resistant PTSD. This will also be the first subject enrolled in our new brain imaging and heart rate sub-study, which will use heart rate variability (HRV) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to measure the physiological effects of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy and explore correlations between those effects and clinical outcomes. Nine subjects have now completed the study following their one-year follow-up. The regularly scheduled site monitoring visit was completed from January 17-20. As of January 31, the site had received 496 participation inquiries.

Give Our Veterans Hope
1 in 7 Iraq and Afghanistan veterans suffer from PTSD, in many cases leading to suicide. We owe it to our veterans to stop this epidemic.

Tell the Pentagon to fund MAPS' groundbreaking work to treat PTSD.
