Curemark is developing a treatment for autism based on research by company founder and CEO Dr. Joan Fallon 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. The company has Investigational New Drug (IND) authorization from the FDA and is now conducting Phase III clinical trials for its CM-AT autism treatmen
