"Autism is a hereditary developmental disorder of the brain. A central risk factor for the development of autism are numerous mutations in over 300 genes that have been identified, including the gene neuroligin-3, which is involved in the formation of synapses, the contact junction between nerve cells"
If it took an RX reactivate the production of neuroligin-3, and reduce some of the symptoms of autism, I'm all for it. Those with things like Parkinson's disease can only hope for such medical advancements.

I think I saw something like this on the EmploymentNurses-dot-com website recently.
