New "Schizophrenia Gene" Prompts Researchers to Test Potential Drug Target

Johns Hopkins Medicine

Johns Hopkins scientists report having used a commercially available drug to successfully “rescue” animal brain cells that they had intentionally damaged by manipulating a newly discovered gene that links susceptibility genes for schizophrenia and autism.

CHARGE Study Shows Comparable Blood Mercury Levels in Children with Autism and Typical Development

Environmental Health Perspectives (NIEHS)

A study published October 19th ahead of print in the peer-reviewed journal Environmental Health Perspectives (EHP) found that 2- to 5-year-old children diagnosed with autism or autism spectrum disorders (AU/ASD) had blood mercury levels similar to those of typically developing control children after adjusting for a variety of sources. The study was conducted through Childhood Autism Risks from Genetics and the Environment (CHARGE), an ongoing study to identify and understand factors contributing to childhood AU/ASD and developmental delays.

Experts Summarize State of the Science in Autism Disorders

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

Scientific understanding and medical treatments for autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) have advanced significantly over the past several years, but much remains to be done. In a scientific review of the field, experts highlight the expanding knowledge of early brain development and the role of early diagnosis of ASDs, accompanied by intensive early treatment.

Autism: Genome-wide Hunt Reveals New Genetic Links

Johns Hopkins Medicine

About 90 percent of autism spectrum disorders have suspected genetic causes but few genes have been identified so far. Now, leading an international team, Johns Hopkins researchers have identified several genetic links to autism, chief among them a variant of semaphorin 5A, whose protein product controls nerve connections in the brain.

Genome-wide Study of Autism Published in Nature

Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard

In one of the first studies of its kind, an international team of researchers has uncovered a single-letter change in the genetic code that is associated with autism. The finding, published in the October 8 issue of the journal Nature, implicates a neuronal gene not previously tied to the disorder and more broadly, underscores a role for common DNA variation.

Leading Online Autism Registry Empowers Researchers with Access to Data, Study Recruitment

Kennedy Krieger Institute

Results from the largest ever twin study confirms that genetics play a role in autism spectrum disorders (ASDs), but also suggest that environmental factors play a role. The study examined concordance rates between identical and fraternal twins and was published in the October issue of Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine.
