Clinical development of mGluR5 Antagonists to Treat Fragile X Syndrome and Autism

Seaside Therapeutics received a major grant from the NIH, with additional funding from FRAXA and Cure Autism Now (CAN) to develop STX107, a selective mGluR5 antagonist, as a treatment for Fragile X.

Unfortunately Seaside has since discontinued development of STX107.
