Researchers discover that an elevated volume of subarachnoid cerebrospinal fluid could be associated with a higher risk of developing autism.
Researchers have used MRI scans to predict risk of developing autism in infants long before symptoms occur – autism was correctly predicted in 80% of infants.
Relationship elucidated between genes associated with psychiatric disorders and social communication
Researchers have discovered that psychiatric disorders share some genetic influences with social communication problems and that these genetic links have disorder-dependent developmental profiles.
A new clinical trial has demonstrated that vitamin D3 supplementation improved symptoms in children with autism spectrum disorder.
Researchers from the Developmental Biology Institute of Marseille (France) and Manchester University (UK) have identified a gene termed ‘Teashirt’ as a potential link between kidney deficits and autism spectrum disorder in children, which could influence how clinicians treat patients.
Researchers have developed a new approach for whole-genome analysis for predicting genes that may be implicated in autism spectrum disorder, raising the number of potential genes from 65 to 2500.
