The EASE project – easier on heart and mind.
MDMA is a psychoactive drug that can enhance mood, empathy, and creativity.
It has been investigated as a potential treatment for various psychiatric disorders, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression, and addiction. The rationale behind MDMA therapy is that it can facilitate the therapeutic process by reducing fear, increasing trust, and enhancing emotional expression.
However, it can also cause serious damage to the heart and the brain, leading to cardiac and cognitive problems. A safer alternative is needed to provide the same benefits without the risks. BioPharm is developing novel compounds that can mimic MDMA’s effects without harming the body or the mind.
