As we have been discussing, biomarkers are important to help us understand and treat Autism.
There is a great deal of interest and work being done related to immune dysfunction in individuals with ASD.
Stem Cell Therapy
One of the treatments for ASD we at Cell El Ltd look forward to observing and researching is Autologous Mesenchymal Stem Cell (MSC) therapy.
Microbiota Transfer Therapy
At Cell-El Ltd, we are also taking a high level of interest in Microbiota Transfer Therapy (MTT) – also known as Fecal Microbial Transplantation (FMT) – to repair the microbial biofilms that live in all of our gastro-intestinal (GI) systems as an important part of the human microbiome.
The use of medical cannabis as a possible treatment for ASD has caught the attention of researchers worldwide, with Israel leading in global medical cannabis research.
Autoimmune Disease & ASD
There has been extensive research examining the prevalence of autoimmune conditions in the families of children with ASD.
Cell-El, Ltd. is striving to create a diagnostic test for ASD based on biomarkers. What are biomarkers? A biomarker is a biological indicator that can be measured and tells us something about a normal or abnormal biological state or a response to a therapeutic intervention or drug.
Biomarkers & Behavior
Cell-El Ltd. is striving to correlate changes in biomarkers (see previous post) with behavioral changes/ changes in core symptoms of ASD. One of the tools we use to track these changes is the ATEC – Autism Treatment Evaluation Checklist.
