RYE, N.Y., Nov. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Curemark LLC announced that it has begun the rolling submission of a New Drug Application (NDA) for CM-AT, the company's autism treatment, with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
CM-AT had previously been granted Fast Track status by the FDA, a designation given to drug candidates that treat serious or life-threatening conditions and demonstrate the potential to address unmet medical needs. The rolling submission process allows companies with a Fast Track designation to submit the NDA in sections to the FDA as they are completed.
"Initiating our 'rolling NDA' submission is a major step in the registration process for CM-AT," said Dr. Joan Fallon, Curemark founder and CEO. "We have an extraordinary opportunity to help many children with autism improve the quality of their lives and we will continue to work closely with the FDA to make that happen."
Curemark previously announced the successful completion of its Phase III multicenter clinical trial of CM-AT for autism. CM-AT met both primary and secondary endpoints in its double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study of children with autism at 3 to 8 years of age.
