Study links autistic children back to mothers who had chronic respiratory ailments, inflammation during pregnancy

Posted on Nov 23, 2018 in Autism

(Natural News) Clinical trials have shown an association between the autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and maternal immune activation (MIA), an active immune response after an infectious exposure during pregnancy, but this study is the first one to examine its link to an increase in behavioral abnormalities in children. The connection between ASD and MIA is still largely unknown but research suggests than an immune system-mediated subtype of ASD is triggered by changes in the cellular activity such as antibody levels in the mother and/or child. Animal models have revealed that MIA is a risk...

Does Air Pollution Raise Autism Risk?

Posted on Nov 22, 2018 in Autism, Environment

MONDAY, Nov. 19, 2018 (HealthDay News) — Traffic-related air pollution may play a role in development of autism, new research suggests. A Canadian study found that exposure to a common air pollutant during pregnancy was tied to higher odds of a child being diagnosed with autism by age 5. That pollutant, nitric oxide, is associated with traffic pollution, the researchers noted. “There is no cure for autism spectrum disorder, so prevention has an important role to play,” said lead researcher Lief Pagalan. “Avoiding air pollution is not easy because it’s all around...

Assessing antidepressant exposure during pregnancy and Autism-like behavior in mouse pups

Posted on Oct 10, 2018 in Autism

Hear what Dr. Buttar and Robert Scott Bell have to say about this article on the July 2, 2018 Advanced Medicine Show Maternal use of the antidepressant fluoxetine (Prozac) can alter the brain circuits in her offspring that control behaviors reminiscent of autism spectrum disorder, suggests a study in mice published in eNeuro. These results have no immediate bearing on the treatment of depression in pregnant women. Medications that increase availability of serotonin in the brain—selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs)—are commonly prescribed to treat mood disorders in pregnant women....

Reversing autism with a cancer drug

Posted on Oct 9, 2018 in Autism

Hear what Dr. Buttar and Robert Scott Bell have to say about this article on the July 2, 2018 Advanced Medicine Show Researchers may have found a promising new treatment for a genetic form of autism. Using experimental cancer drugs, scientists reversed the condition in mice. It may soon be possible to reverse and even prevent autism. According to the most recent estimates, 1 in 59 children in the United States have an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Over 7 percent of these cases have been tied to chromosomal defects, suggesting that many of the impairments in social communication, movement,...
