Id: NCT01053403

Organisation Name: California Pacific Medical Center Research Institute

Overal Status: Completed

Start Date: April 2010

Lead Sponsor: California Pacific Medical Center Research Institute

Brief Summary: The purpose of this study is to measure the effects of MDMA on sleep, mood, thinking, and how your body retains water. The researchers are interested in the effects that occur a few hours after taking MDMA as well as effects occurring over the next two days. We will study these effects in a standardized, controlled setting at the Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) Clinical Research Center (CRC) located at San Francisco General Hospital.

The primary hypotheses are:

MDMA will induce sleep disruption, as indicated by comprehensive polysomnography, wrist actigraphy, and self-report sleep measures
MDMA will alter sodium and water homeostasis by either increasing or blunting the suppression of arginine vasopressin levels and decreasing free water excretion. Effects will be exacerbated by water loading.

Secondary hypotheses:

Acutely, MDMA will increase both positive and negative arousal, and to increase sociability but not autonomy.
Acutely, MDMA will increase risk-taking and willingness to donate money to others in an economic decision making task.
MDMA will decrease the stressful effects of talking about a negatively-valenced autobiographical but will increase recall for details for these episodes.
MDMA will increase oxidative stress markers and possible ameliorating factors (e.g., ADMA).
The short form of the serotonin transported promoter region will be associated with greater acute and discontinuation effects of MDMA.
