Curemark gets nod to start late-stage trial for ADHD drug

RYE, N.Y. The Food and Drug Administration has approved a late-stage clinical trial of a drug for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

Curemark said the FDA cleared its application to run a phase 3 trial of CM-4612 in patients with ADHD. The company is currently conducting a phase 3 trial of CM-AT, a treatment for autism in children.

“We are very excited to have received [clearance] from the FDA so that we can move forward with clinical trials to study CM-4612,” Curemark CEO Joan Fallon said. “Curemark hopes to have the first physiologically based medication to address ADHD, in lieu of the current psychotropic and stimulant treatments.”
