Seems like begging for money rather that divulging what the links are between fragile X and autism. Two distinct diseases one manifesting from birth the other shortly after vaccination at around 18 months. With one disease for which specific gene is known for the other no genes have been linked.

They are not looking for links between Fragile X and autism. It's already a known fact: While autism is the more commonly known of the two conditions, fragile X syndrome is the most common known genetic cause of autism and autism spectrum disorders. It is also the most common cause of inherited intellectual disability and can cause learning and behavioral disorders that can range from mild to severe. New scientific research has further established the interconnectivity between these two conditions.

But you know, this if one isn't interested in these drugs trials, so be it. For many, it could help them a great deal.

More fluff and hypothetical smoke screen deflecting away from vaccine caused autism. Trash.
