Currently, the structure of the X(3872) meson is unknown. Different competing models of the cc- exotic state X(3872) exist, including the possibilities that this state is either a mesonic molecule with dominating D0D-*0+c.c. composition, a cc-qq- tetraquark, or a cc--gluon hybrid state. It is expected that the X(3872) state is rather strongly coupled to the p-p channel and, therefore, can be produced in p-p and p-A collisions at PANDA. We propose to test the hypothetical molecular structure of X(3872) by studying the D or D-* stripping reactions on a nuclear residue.
