Abstract: In addition to completed and ongoing MAPS-sponsored studies in the US and Switzerland, this roundtable will consist of brief updates on Phase 2 studies of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for PTSD underway or in the approval process in Boulder, Colorado; Israel; Canada; the UK; and Australia. Innovations in the various protocol designs will be highlighted as part of the overall effort to refine the scientific methodology for the Phase 3 protocol designs.
