Alcobra Ltd. (NASDAQ: ADHD), an emerging biopharmaceutical company primarily focused on the development and commercialization of its proprietary drug, MG01CI, to treat Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), announced today that it has enrolled its first patient in a placebo-controlled clinical study designed to compare the efficacy of varied dosage levels of MG01CI to treat and improve executive dysfunctions in adult patients with Predominantly Inattentive Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (PI-ADHD).
