Medication Study For Young children with Autism

Last Updated: Thursday, November 12, 2015

Principal Investigator:


A new drug being studied, CM-AT, is based on Curemark’s recent research that showed enzyme deficiencies in some autistic children result 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.

The study involves 9 visits over 12 weeks. Visits may include questionnaires, stool samples, or physical exams at no cost to you.

Your time will be compensated.

Sponsored by Curemark.
