Mdma: Research Areas Needing More Emphasis: The purpose of this PA is to provide an optimally comprehensive, strategic, and balanced MDMA (3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine) research program, given the upsurge in MDMA abuse worldwide, including its abuse outside the rave scene. Although researchers have made great strides in characterizing MDMAs neural mechanisms and neurotoxicity, it is necessary now to focus on specific areas of MDMA research, across all research disciplines, urgently needing our attention. For the purpose of this PA, the term MDMA is defined as 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine and its very close structural analogues, such as p-methoxyamphetamine (PMA), p-methoxymethamphetamine (PMMA), and 3,4-methylenedioxy-N-ethyl-amphetamine (MDEA), insofar as they share specific subjective, discriminative stimulus, or toxicological properties with 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine; however, methamphetamine and other amphetamines that are characterized by neurotoxic effects on central dopaminergic systems in experimental animals are not included in this definition. Ecstasy is defined as a preparation (usually a tablet) supposed by its users to contain MDMA.
