RYE, N.Y., May 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Joan Fallon, founder and CEO of Curemark, LLC, (www.curemark.com), a drug research and development company focused on the treatment of neurological diseases, presented at the Keystone Symposia meeting, Toward Defining the Pathophysiology of Autistic Behavior, held in April in Snowbird, Utah.
Fallon presented on "The Role of Protein Assimilation and Utilization in Children with Autism." She discussed Curemark's research exploring a possible link between a lack of protein-digesting enzymes in autistic children, necessary for the production of amino acids needed for brain function, and the symptoms of autism.
"The Keystone Symposia meeting provided an excellent forum to share our research with others in the scientific community who are attempting to understand the physiological causes of autism and working to develop possible therapies," Fallon said.
Curemark is in the midst of Phase III clinical trials for CM-AT, its autism treatment targeted as enzyme replacement therapy. CM-AT recently was designated as a Fast Track drug by the FDA.
Keystone Symposia on Molecular and Cellular Biology is a non-profit organization with a 38-year history of organizing conferences to connect the scientific community and accelerate scientific discoveries.
