Background: We have developed two preliminary blood and urine tests for diagnosing risk of autism.
Study Purpose: To further validate and improve the accuracy of the test in more children with and without autism.
Who can enroll? Children ages 2-11 years with good physical and mental health who do not have a sibling or parent with autism.
Questionnaires on medical history and symptoms (20-30 minutes).
One clinic visit (15 minutes) for a small blood draw.
One urine collection at home.
Compensation: $125 for participation.
Participation is voluntary.
Impact: Participation in this study will help us understand what is different in children with autism, so that we can better diagnose and treat them.
