6 May, 2019

Rye, N.Y. May 6, 2019/PRNewswire/ — Curemark, LLC announced today that results from its Phase 3 clinical trial, the Blüm Study, were presented at the International Society of Autism Research (INSAR) Annual Meeting held in Montreal, Canada from May 1-4, 2019. The presentation focused on data from the preschool population included in the Blüm Study.

INSAR, formed in 2001, is a scientific and professional organization devoted to advancing knowledge about autism spectrum disorders (ASD). The INSAR Annual Meeting is the Society’s scientific meeting convened each spring to exchange and disseminate scientific progress from ASD scientists and researchers around the world.

The presentation, titled “Pancreatic Replacement Therapy with CM-AT is Associated with Reduction in Maladaptive Behaviors in Preschoolers with Autism,” was presented by Dr. Deborah Pearson, Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the University of Texas, Houston, and demonstrates statistically significant improvements in core and non-core symptoms of autism in the preschool subpopulation taking CM-AT versus placebo.

“We are honored to have presented our findings to the autism research community,” commented Dr. Joan Fallon, Curemark’s Chief Executive Officer. “Our data suggests that CM-AT has an effect on core and non-core symptoms, including communication, in children ages 3 through to 6 with autism. These are promising findings given the limited treatment options for this youngest patient population.”

About the Blüm Study

The Blüm Study, completed in 2018, was a 14-week, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled Phase 3 study conducted to determine if CM-AT may help improve core and non-core symptoms of autism. CM-AT, which has been granted Fast Track designation by FDA, is designed to enhance protein digestion, thereby potentially restoring the pool of essential amino acids. Essential amino acids play a critical role in the expression of several genes important to neurological function and serve as precursors to key neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine.
