This US patent application describes the use of gene markers, such as TSC1, TSC2, SHANK3, or HOMER1, for diagnosing the presence or an increased risk of developing autism spectrum disorders using next generation sequencing. The autism spectrum disorder includes non-syndromic autism, classical autism, Asperger's syndrome, Rett's syndrome, childhood disintegrative disorder, or pervasive developmental disorder. http://www.sciclips.com/sciclips/biomarker-ne...

Where is Sporadic/regressive autism? Oh yeah ignore that one because it leads to uncomfortable and inconvenient questions.

Actually, "regressive autism" isn't an official diagnosis.. That's probably why it wasn't included. The only actual diagnoses within the pervasive developmental disorder(basically the current official term for the autistic spectrum) category are Autistic Disorder, Asperger's Disorder, Pervasive Developmental Disorder - Not Otherwise Specified, Rett's Disorder, and Childhood Disintegrative Disorder.. If you or your child don't have one of those diagnoses, then you/they don't have an ASD diagnosis. Someone with "regressive autism"(which isn't a diagnosis, so theres really no criteria.. Unless it's specifically referring to CDD, which is the only one that includes regression as a criteria), therefore, would have a diagnosis falling into one of those groups. If the regression occurred after two years of age, then the diagnosis should probably be CDD, if before then probably autistic disorder... It's not super clear on this though, so it would probably be open for interpretation by the one doing the diagnosing.

I don't know why they threw "non syndromal autism" into the list, but otherwise what they listed was the PDDs, and included everyone who would currently be considered a part of the autistic spectrum, including anyone who is "regressive." You really should know this basic information, seeing as how you act like you know so much about autism.

Also, from what I've read, regressive autistics also have these genetic abnormalities. So.. I fail to see how regressive autism is being ignored in any way here.

non-syndromic autism is suppose to mean 'classic'. Maybe they meant 'classic to include all the PDD's?

In any event, autism is mainly diagnosed by the DSM observation. This is a patent for an actual medical test to look for those known abnormalities.

It's odd even for an anti vaxxer to not be excited about such a test.

Excited about what? I'm used to Bee Ess and coverup from mainstream medicine. A patent so someone can make money of the vaccine injured. Vultures

I don't want to know the garbage science these Pharma pushers create to hide the truth. The wording they use is carefully crafted to fool the people, and some people are easily tricked. Funny you don't know that when you are one of the obvious victims.

Yea, I though Wakefield's patents were bogus, too. But at least this is an actual test, not a measles vaccine patent.

Come on back when you have your son tested and tell what the results are.

If anyone needs testing its you.

I'm not the one afraid of testing, you are and wont have your son tested for known genetic causes.

For the rest of anyone else who isn't afraid of answers, this test is good news.

It's a test you're afraid of. It's as simple as that.

This test is a great start. You undermining it's importance speaks volumes about you, and your inner fears.

So you don't agree with such a test, no one really cares why you wouldn't test your child. But your fears wont stop others.

While they are at it they should volunteer to test vaccines and pharmaceuticals. They are safe and the side effects are rare and mild, like seizures and paralysis and death.

Has nothing to do with vaccines. Nothing at all.
