The way current treatments of neuro-developmental disorders work is by alleviating some of the symptoms. Unfortunately, current approaches do not target the underlying causes of developmental disabilities. The goal of Seaside Therapeutics is to provide a therapy for neuro-developmental disorders like autism, and fragile X syndrome, that addresses the basis of the problem. The latest discoveries in neurobiology are being used and translated into therapeutics resulting in a better life for patients and their families.
With its scientific methodology, Seaside Therapeutics aims at changing the current picture of drug design and development. Great emphasis is placed on disorders located in single-genes, with a high priority on autism and fragile X syndrome.
