TEL AVIV, Israel, Jan. 27, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alcobra Ltd. (Nasdaq:ADHD), an emerging biopharmaceutical company primarily focused on the development and commercialization of its proprietary drug candidate, MG01CI (Metadoxine Extended-Release), to treat cognitive dysfunctions, such as ADHD and Fragile X Syndrome, announced today positive results from a new study in Fmr1 knock-out mice, a validated animal model of Fragile X Syndrome. The study revealed that normalization of certain over-activated biological markers was evident in the blood and brains of test mice following treatment with Metadoxine. This finding raises the possibility of using this effect as a screening tool in future clinical investigations for identifying patients who are more likely to respond to treatment and monitoring their response over time.
