Alcobra is developing novel and differentiated therapies for cognitive symptoms in various CNS disorders, initially targeting attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The company is approaching Phase III clinical trials with lead compound (MG01CI), which if successful, could be a best-in-class non-stimulant with psychostimulants competitive efficacy, superior side effect profile and specific utility in predominantly inattentive ADHD patients. Additionally, MG01CI could treat cognitive symptoms for multiple other CNS conditions and Alcobra is initiating a program to treat cognitive symptoms in Fragile X syndrome (viewed as a call option). We believe Alcobra is on the verge of bringing truly effective products to a large market, side-stepping many shortcomings of current therapies.”
