Social Anxiety in Autistic Adults: First Two Subjects Enrolled

On May 17 and June 20, 2014, the first and second subjects were enrolled in our new study of MDMA-assisted therapy for social anxiety in adults on the autism spectrum. The first treatments are scheduled to take place in July. Based on the known effects of MDMA, as well as individual reports, this exploratory study in 12 subjects will focus on enhancing functional skills and quality of life in autistic adults with social anxiety. The study is led by Principal Investigator Charles Grob, M.D., and Co-Investigator Alicia Danforth, Ph.D., in affiliation with the Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute.
