RYE, N.Y., June 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Curemark, LLC, (www.curemark.com), a drug research and development company focused on the treatment of neurological diseases, announced that the company has opened clinical trial enrollment for CM-AT, its autism treatment, at the University of Pittsburgh and the Alexian Brothers Behavioral Health Hospital in Hoffman Estates, Illinois, near Chicago. A total of 12 sites nationwide are recruiting patients for CM-AT Phase III clinical trials.
CM-AT is based on Curemark'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 has received Fast Track status from the FDA. If approved, it will be one of the first therapies to address the underlying physiology of autism.
"Curemark's clinical trial program is making rapid progress, with enrollment moving forward quickly at our CM-AT trial sites," said Dr. Joan Fallon, Curemark founder and CEO. "We're also considering additional sites with potential interest in participating in the CM-AT clinical research."
