Curemark is currently developing an autism treatment, CM-AT, which is now in Phase III clinical trials. CM-AT targets enzyme deficiencies in autistic children that affect the availability of amino acids, the building blocks of chemicals essential to brain function. Curemark's autism therapy has been granted Fast Track status by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The FDA also has given clearance to Curemark's Investigational New Drug (IND) application for a Phase III clinical trial to study the use of the company's compound CM-4612 in the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
