Blood-Based Epigenetic Research May Hold Clues to Autism Biology, Study Suggests

Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health

Using data from blood and brain tissue, a team led by researchers at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health found that they could gain insights into mechanisms that might help explain autism by analyzing the interplay between genes and chemical tags that control whether genes are used to make a protein, called epigenetic marks.

Inflamed Support Cells Appear to Contribute to Some Kinds of Autism

University of California San Diego Health

Modeling the interplay between neurons and astrocytes derived from children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine, with colleagues in Brazil, say innate inflammation in the latter appears to contribute to neuronal dysfunction in at least some forms of the disease.

Autism & Innovation Center Established to Help People with ASD Find Meaningful Work

Vanderbilt University

Creating a model pipeline that will assist adults on the autism spectrum find meaningful and gainful employment while enhancing local business innovation. That is the purpose of Vanderbilt University’s Center for Autism & Innovation (VCAI). The new center brings together academic researchers, educators, employers, philanthropists and community organizers to address one of the biggest problems that individuals with ASD and their families face as they reach adulthood: How can they achieve financial independence and become contributing members of society? “Autism now represents one-and-a-half percent of the population,” said center director Keivan Stassun, Stevenson Professor of Physics and Astronomy.

Whole Genome Sequencing Identifies New Genetic Signature for Autism

Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI)

An analysis of the complete genomes of 2,064 people reveals that multiple genetic variations could contribute to autism. The work suggests that scanning whole genomes may one day be useful for clinical diagnostics.

State Laws Requiring Autism Coverage by Private Insurers Led to Increases in Autism Care

Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health

A new study led by researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health has found that the enactment of state laws mandating coverage of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) was followed by sizeable increases in insurer-covered ASD care and associated spending.

Genetic Body/Brain Connection Identified in Genomic Region Linked to Autism

Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research

For the first time, scientists have directly linked deletions in two genes in zebrafish and traits, such as seizures, hyperactivity, large head size, and increased fat content. Both genes are in a genome region linked to autism spectrum disorder, developmental delays, seizures, and obesity in humans

Tulane Brain Institute Researchers Focus on Epilepsy, Autism and Schizophrenia

Tulane University

Tulane University’s Laura Schrader, a cell and molecular biology professor and Brain Institute member, received a two-year grant from the National Institute of Health to study the role of a Shox2, a protein in the brain important for development and function of the thalamus. Schrader is exploring Shox2’s potential link to epilepsy, autism and schizophrenia.
