New Studies Announced

The National Institute of Mental Health has announced the start of three new studies on autism:
*One study will define differences--both biological and behavioral--in autistic children with diverse developmental histories.
*In another study, NIMH researchers will examine the use of the antibiotic minocycline to measure its usefulness in treating regressive autism.
*The third study seeks to address the widespread but unproven theory that autism may be treated successfully by chelation therapy, which seeks to remove heavy metals from the blood.
