Scientists Developed a 100% Accurate Test to Predict Autism Risk

Scientists from the University of California, Davis, and Stanford University, U. S., developed a 100% accurate test for the antibodies in the mother’s blood allowing to identify the risk of a child being born with autism.autism

To create this test, a team of researchers analyzed plasma taken from 450 mothers with children diagnosed with ASD, and from 342 mothers who had children without a diagnosis. The results were used to develop an enzyme-linked, immunosorbent assay (ELISA), a method of identifying the presence of materials in a solution by way of specialized antibodies embedded in the wall of a container.

UC Davis immunologist Judy Van de Water explains the results of their findings: “For example, if the mother has autoantibodies to CRIMP1 and GDA (the most common pattern), her odds of having a child with autism is 31 times greater than the general population, based on this current dataset.”
