A Multi-center, Randomized, Double-blind, 12-week, Parallel Group, Placebo-controlled Proof of Concept Study to Investigate the Efficacy and Safety of RG7314 in Individuals With Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)

This multi-center, randomized, double-blind, parallel group, placebo-controlled, proof of concept study will investigate the efficacy and safety of RG7314 in adult patients with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). In stage I of the study, patients will be randomized to receive daily oral doses of 1.5 mg RG7314 or placebo for 12 weeks. After an independent safety review, the study may proceed to stage II. In stage II of the study, additional patients will be randomized to receive daily oral doses of 4 mg RG7314 or placebo for 12 weeks. The anticipated time on study treatment is 12 weeks.

Stanford is now accepting new patients for this trial. Please contact SPECTRUM at for more information.
