Defect found in cells of people with autism may be treated
October 20, 2016
A study in the United States has identified a defect in the cells of people with autism.
The defect can be treated with medication that is already available.
The new research says that autism may be caused by a defect in the way cells recycle their batteries, which are called mitochondria.
Two medications that are available could cure this defect. When they were used, brain cells were able to produce fresh mitochondria.
Further tests will be done on bigger groups of people.
