About Autism

Autism, or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a common, yet complex condition. It affects nearly one in 60 children in the United States.

Often, children with Autism experience trouble with their communication skills, and can have difficulty interacting with other children their age. Another characteristic of ASD is repetitive and restrictive interests that can cause difficulty when it comes to changing their routine.

Delayed movement, language, learning disabilities, and unusual sleeping and eating habits are other trademarks of the condition.

The cause of Autism is not yet known; however, there is continual research being conducted to determine the environmental, biologic, and genetic factors associated with this condition.

The purpose of the Autism Study is to evaluate a study medication to reduce irritability in children who have Autism.

All medications must be tested in clinical research studies before they can be approved by regulatory authorities for doctors to prescribe to patients. Without people taking part in these studies, we would have no new treatments. The volunteers who participate in clinical research studies play a major role in helping to advance medicine.
