A recent international study has explored autoantibody reactivity in the blood serum of individuals with ASD using a high-throughput assay. The authors discovered 29 autoantibodies that were differentially expressed in ASD. These differential autoantibodies were reactive against proteins involved in axonal guidance, synaptic function, amino acid metabolism, fatty acid metabolism, and chromatin binding. The researchers […]

Abnormal Mitochondrial Markers Found in Adults with Autism

Males with ASD Show More Marker Alterations than Females with ASD New research from Germany has examined the markers of mitochondrial metabolism in adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and compared those markers to neurotypical controls (NTC). This study investigated potential mitochondrial dysfunction by assessing blood metabolite levels linked to mitochondrial metabolism. Specifically, blood levels […]

According to new research, the exposure of pregnant women to insecticides during the first trimester may negatively affect their offspring’s neurodevelopment, particularly in boys. The current study also discovered that the mixture effect (e.g., when two or more compounds in a mixture interact that affect each other’s toxicity) was mainly influenced by trans-DCCA and TCPy. […]

Maternal Immune Response, the Autistic Brain and Memory Retention from Early Childhood

Pioneering Research Reveals that Kids with ASD Retain More Memories from Early Childhood Than Neurotypical Children Neuroscientists at Trinity College Dublin have discovered a fascinating new link between the retention of early life memories and autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This innovative study reveals that children on the spectrum retain memories from early childhood, while neurotypical […]

New Research Examines Symptoms of Autism Throughout Midlife and Beyond

Findings Show that Those without ID Had an Accelerated Set of Challenges in Later Years New research from the University of Wisconsin used an accelerated longitudinal design to estimate age-related trajectories over a 60-year period for a large community-based sample of individuals on the spectrum. Unlike most studies that track autism trajectories over childhood, this […]
