Comment: This current study describes the therapeutic use of MDMA by committed experts in a specialised setting in a small group of participants, most of whom self-referred for the trial. The unmet need for better PTSD treatment, particularly in veterans and first responders, is undoubted. However, the generalisability of the benefit of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy to more mainstream psychiatry remains to be established, recalling perhaps the famous American watchword, “Will it play in Peoria?”
