Autism symptoms reduced nearly 50% 2 years after fecal transplant

Autism symptoms reduced nearly 50% 2 years after fecal transplant

A new technique called Microbiota Transfer Therapy appears to be effective in alleviating one of the frequent symptoms of autism spectrum disorder — called ASD. A recent study by Fulton Schools Professors Rosa-Krajmalnick-Brown and James Adams, along with Dae-Wook Kang, a research collaborator with ASU’s Swette Center for Environmental Biotechnology, shows the fecal transplant method can produce long-term beneficial effects for children diagnosed with ASD. Many children with autism have gastrointestinal problems. The three researchers have demonstrated that by transplanting healthy fecal microbiota into individuals lacking certain kinds of gut bacteria it’s possible to improve their gut health, which significantly relieves the chronic gastrointestinal discomfort that afflicts many people with autism. The article was also published by Science Daily.
