New Sites for Clinical Trials Network Study

November 30, 2007

The Clinical Trials Network is pleased to announce the addition of four new participating centers for its on-going trial, the Study of Fluoxetine in Autism (SOFIA).

The study will include more than 100 children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) to confirm the effectiveness of Neuropharm's custom-designed product NPL-2008, a proprietary preparation of fluoxetine, in reducing certain core symptoms of ASD. This new formulation will feature autism-specific doses in a melt-in-the-mouth formulation designed specifically for those with ASD.
