Another repeat finding from almost a year ago.

"Here, we report autistic first cousins who carry two microduplications concordant with disease. Both duplications were -->inherited maternally<-- and found to be identical by descent. The first is an approximately 10,000 base pair microduplication within the minimal region on 15q24 that falls across a single gene. This is the smallest duplication in the region to result in a neuropsychiatric disorder, potentially narrowing the critical region for susceptibility to developmental and autism spectrum disorders"

This is what the Genome Project was all about.

It says potentially. That means zero. Hypothetical. Some may run off at the mouth claiming its proof of something, but that would be premature and unethical.

Should it be a surprise first cousins have things in common? Do other first cousins in this family have these small errors but are not autistic? Funny how information is left out so that this study seems significant.Were both children vaccinated?

The word potential isn't in the paragraph at all.

Nice try.

And tell, how does vaccines duplicate a gene? LOL!

How does vaccines duplicate a gene? And a specific gene? And what about that inherited maternally?

If you cant answer those, then you're the one who knows nothing.

They already said that answer in the study.
I figured you got nothing

Most anti vaxxers mistake a hypothesis to the actual findings in a study. It looks like you're no exception.

As usual, without any valid reasons, you simply discredit the study and resort to typical middle school name-calling when a study shows up that totally discredits YOUR hypothesis.
Priceless example.

DUH. Its provaxxers who use words like "possible, likely, may" etc as proof. And coincidence.
