In big industry news, MAPS has published the second part of its long-awaited Phase 3 trial of MDMA-assisted therapy for PTSD.
The first part of the Phase 3 trial had potentially historically significant results, and the entire industry has been waiting for the second part of its Phase 3 study. A successful outcome in this confirmatory Phase 3 trial would set the stage for a likely FDA approval of MDMA for PTSD.
Results of the second Phase 3 trial have now been published in Nature Medicine, showing details of MDMA-assisted therapy for posttraumatic stress disorder.
- “…45 of 52 (86.5%) participants treated with MDMA-AT achieved a clinically meaningful benefit, and 37 of 52 (71.2%) participants no longer met criteria for PTSD”
- The MDMA group achieved remission of PTSD at more than double the rate of the placebo group (reduction in CAPS-5 score was 23.7 in MDMA group vs 14.8 for placebo group, both with therapy).
- Five participants in the MDMA-AT group had severe adverse effects (9.4%) versus two in the placebo group.
These results seem to confirm the impressive results from both MAPS’ Phase 2 and previous Phase 3 studies.
According to the press release, MAPS PBC is now compiling data from 18 MAPS-sponsored Phase 2 and Phase 3 studies to form the basis of the New Drug Application, expected to be filed with the FDA later this year.
