RYE, N.Y., April 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Curemark, LLC, (www.curemark.com), a drug research and development company focused on the treatment of neurological diseases, announced that the company is now enrolling Phase III clinical trials for CM-AT, its autism treatment, at the UC Davis MIND Institute (Medical Investigation of Neurodevelopmental Disorders).
UC Davis MIND Institute joins Curemark's network of more than 12 sites across the country conducting CM-AT trials with a total 170 children. The MIND Institute is an internationally renowned research center for understanding autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders. With a staff of over 250, the center brings together experts in neuroscience, education, immunology, genetics, molecular biology, psychology and developmental pediatrics.
"We are very pleased to be working with the MIND Institute, one of the premier research institutions in the world for autism and other neurological disorders," said Dr. Joan Fallon, Curemark founder and CEO. "The MIND Institute is renowned as a leader for its state-of-the-art research and interdisciplinary approach to finding innovative new ways to treat neurodevelopmental conditions."
Curemark's CM-AT is based on Dr. Fallon's research that showed enzyme deficiencies in autistic children, resulting in an inability to digest protein. The inability to digest protein affects the production of amino acids, the building blocks of chemicals essential for brain function. CM-AT, which recently was designated by the FDA as a Fast Track drug, will be one of the first therapies to address the underlying physiology of autism, rather than just treat its symptoms.
