Curemark LLC Reports Positive Phase III Results of CM-AT in Children With Autism

RYE, N.Y., Dec. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Curemark LLC, a Rye, New York-based drug research and development company, today announced that its Phase III double blind randomized placebo controlled multicenter clinical trial of CM-AT for autism met its primary and secondary endpoints.  The trial compared CM-AT to placebo in children with autism aged 3 – 8.  Top line results demonstrate a statistically significant effect of CM-AT over placebo on both core and non-core symptoms of autism.  Analysis of the full trial data is ongoing and the results will be presented at an upcoming medical meeting.

"We are extremely pleased with the results of our trial," said Dr. Joan Fallon, CEO of Curemark. "We wish to thank all the children and their parents who participated in the study, and look forward to a full review of the data by the FDA."

CM-AT has been granted Fast Track status by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The fast track programs of the Food and Drug Administration are designed to facilitate the development and expedite the review of new drugs that are intended to treat serious or life-threatening conditions and that demonstrate the potential to address unmet medical needs.

About Autism

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a range of complex neurodevelopment disorders characterized by social impairments, communication difficulties, and restricted, repetitive, and stereotyped patterns of behavior.  It is estimated that autism affects 1 in 110 children in the United States.  It is reported to occur in all racial, ethnic and socioeconomic groups, with a 4 to 5 times greater occurrence in boys than girls.  It occurs worldwide, with reports of over 2.6% prevalence in Korea, and a 0.5-1% prevalence in other countries in Asia and Europe.  There is presently no drug approved to treat the core symptoms of autism.  Recent studies have estimated that the lifetime cost to care for an individual with an ASD is $3.2 million.
