Clinical Trials Network  

The Autism Clinical Trials Network (ACTN) is a collaboration of treatment and research centers dedicated to accelerating clinical trials of investigational treatments for autism and to increasing the number of biological treatments available to families and clinicians. The ACTN was officially launched in 2005 to focus on translational research, the critical step necessary to transfer findings from the laboratory to clinical application. By facilitating data-sharing and multi-center trials, the goal of the network will be to test the efficacies of treatment approaches as well as to rapidly screen new promising compounds that emerge from biomedical research, significantly decreasing the time and amount of money needed to develop them.
