About Alcobra


We are a publicly traded, emerging pharmaceutical company (NASDAQ – ADHD) primarily focused on the development and commercialization of our proprietary drug, METADOXINE EXTENDED RELEASE (MDX), to treat cognitive disorders including Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Fragile X Syndrome.

METADOXINE EXTENDED RELEASE is not a stimulant; it works through a different mechanism of action than other ADHD treatments. Alcobra has completed multiple Phase II studies and a Phase III study of MDX in adults with ADHD. The company is conducting separate Phase IIb trials of MDX in pediatric ADHD and Fragile X Syndrome.


Our objective is to develop and commercialize proprietary pharmaceutical products for treatment of central nervous system disorders, and cognitive dysfunctions in particular.

We intend to conduct additional clinical trials for our most advanced product (MDX) and, if those trials are successful, seek marketing approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and other worldwide regulatory bodies for MDX for the treatment of ADHD in adults and children. We also are advancing clinical studies and commercialization plans for MDX in additional indications of cognitive dysfunction where there is significant unmet clinical need such as Fragile X Syndrome.
