Researchers report differences in oral microbial gene expression may distinguish children with ASD from their peers not on the spectrum. The study suggests GI microbiome disruptions, previously identified in children with ASD, may extend to the mouth and throat.
A new study reveals researchers were able to distinguish between children with or without ASD diagnosis, thanks to a new saliva based biomarker panel. Researchers report the test can be used in children as young as 18 month, assisting in early diagnosis of autism.
Blood samples reveal unique metabolic signatures in over 50% of children on the autism spectrum.
