Genea Stem Cells (GSC) develops disease-specific pluripotent and differentiated human cells for use in drug discovery and research. Based on the world’s largest private bank of human embryonic stem cells (about 100 lines/30 diseases), GSC supplies application-ready, disease-affected and control differentiated cell types and works collaboratively with industry for custom-developed cell-based assay solutions in drug development. All of GSC’s cell products are genetically unmodified human cells - the most accurate in vitro reflection of clinical conditions.

Scientifically Studying Ecstasy

MDMA (commonly known as the empathogen “ecstasy”) is classified as a Schedule 1 drug, which is reserved for compounds with no accepted medical use and a high abuse potential. Two researchers from Stanford, however, call for a rigorous scientific exploration of MDMA's effects to identify precisely how the drug works, the data from which could be used to develop therapeutic compounds.

Do you agree that ecstasy should be studied for its potential therapeutic benefits?
