CureMark CEO Joan Fallon to Moderate Autism Panel at CNS Leaders Forum


10/23/2012 12:21:45 PM

RYE, N.Y., Oct. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Curemark founder and CEO Dr. Joan Fallon will moderate a panel on neurodegeneration including sessions on autism and schizophrenia at the Phaciliate CNS Leaders Forum, to be held Nov. 5-7 in Boston at the Seaport Hotel. The forum will bring together senior R&D and business executives driving the development and launch of novel drugs for neurodegenerative diseases, psychiatric disorders and pain.

Curemark, a drug research and development company focused on the treatment of neurological diseases, has completed Phase III clinical trials for CM-AT, its autism treatment. The company announced that the study met its primary and secondary endpoints. Top line results demonstrated a statistically significant effect of CM-AT over placebo on both the core and non-core symptoms of autism, according to Curemark.

Dr. Fallon will provide the introduction and overview to the CNS Forum section on "Breakthroughs in the Re-categorization of Psychiatric Disorders," scheduled for Tuesday, November 6, at noon. Panel participants include Dr. Randall Carpenter, president and CEO, Seaside Therapeutics, Inc; Dr. Sonia Maria Poli, head of non-clinical development and interim head of CNS, Addex Pharmaceuticals, Ltd; David Bleakman, PhD, executive director and chief scientific officer, neuroscience discovery research, Eli Lilly and Company; and Frank S. Menniti, PhD, chief scientific officer, Mnemosyne Pharmaceuticals.

"I am very pleased to lead this workshop that will examine and discuss novel approaches to treating neurodegenerative disorders including schizophrenia and autism. The panel will discuss inventive and new strategies for examining subpopulations and genomic approaches to treatment," Fallon said. "Biomarkers, including physiological and gene markers, may ultimately lead to better and more efficient treatment for many of the neuropsychiatric disorders, which are presently treated as a single category of disease."

According to the latest estimates, autism affects 1 in 88 children and 1 in 54 boys in the United States. Schizophrenia affects approximately 1% of the U.S. population, according to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH).
