Intensive Care Med Exp 2020 Jun 15;8(1):21. Epub 2020 Jun 15.

Department of Cardiology and Angiology I, Faculty of Medicine, Heart Center Freiburg University, University of Freiburg, Hugstetter Str. 55, 79106, Freiburg, Germany.

To date, there is no causal therapy of MDMA intoxication and removal of MDMA from the circulation might be a reasonable measure to prevent adverse courses after overdosing. We present here first-in-man experience and in vitro data supporting a potential role of an adsorber device in severe MDMA overdosing. Read More
