ct raised blood pressure and other symptoms in the MDMA group. He added that an upcoming phase 2 trial -- looking at the effects of MDMA-assisted therapy on veterans with PTSD -- will hopefully avoid this problem, since all patients will receive the drug, but in different dosages.

Another PTSD researcher said the study results were intriguing but added that important safety concerns need to be resolved.

"Some animal studies have shown that MDMA is a neurotoxin, so there's a lot of work that needs to be done to make sure there are no long-term side effects," said Keith A. Young, co-director of the Neuropsychiatry Research Program at Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine.

Young, who is also core leader of the VA Center of Excellence for Research on Returning War Veterans in Waco, predicted that the findings would spur more research. "A lot of clinical scientists will be interested in seeing this data," he said.
