RYE, N.Y., Oct. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Curemark LLC announced today the closing of $18.5 million in common equity financing led by a leading European institutional investor. Curemark will use the funds for the completion and filing requirements for its New Drug Application (NDA) for CM-AT, the company's autism treatment, and the development of the other therapies in its pipeline.
"The completion of our latest financing allows us to determine the commercial pathway for CM-AT to bring it to the children who desperately need it," said Dr. Joan Fallon, Curemark founder and CEO. "In addition, the financing exhibits our investors' continued confidence in the company and will enhance our development pipeline for Schizophrenia, ADHD and Parkinson's."
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. In April, Curemark announced the successful completion of its pre-NDA meeting with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for CM-AT, which has been designated as a Fast Track drug by the agency.
