Description

Description

The objective of this study is to determine the role of T-regulatory cells in the pathway of immune dysregulation in autism. Understanding this mechanism will advance understanding of the relationship between autism and immune dysfunction. This will provide important clues to the etiology of autism, identify potential immune biomarkers, and direct research efforts toward possible immunologic therapies.
