A research study involving 90 participants determined that MDMA, commonly known as ecstasy or molly, when paired with talk therapy can help those suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), The New York Times reported on Monday. The study, which was obtained by the Times and has not yet been published, determined that two months after treatment, 67 percent of participants who received MDMA did not qualify for a PTSD diagnosis any more, compared with 32 percent who did not take the drug. The research is expected to be published in Nature Medicine later this month and moves MDMA closer to getting Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorization for therapeutic use.
