Roche in cooperation deal for autism treatment
ZURICH, June 19 |
ZURICH, June 19 (Reuters) - Swiss drugmaker Roche said on Tuesday it planned to work together with Seaside Therapeutics develop treatments targeting the molecular basis for autism spectrum disorders and fragile X syndrome.
"The alliance aims to speed up research and development in this field and lead a fundamental change in the treatment paradigm," the Basel-based firm said in a statement.
Seaside, based in Massachusetts, will license patents and Roche will then lead the development and commercialisation of them, they said. (Reporting by Catherine Bosley)
