Scientists have found that a certain form of autism which is accompanied by epilepsy (seizures or convulsions) may be potentially treatable using a common nutritional supplement containing branched chain amino acids (BCAA). The international team of researchers, led by scientists at the University of California, San Diego and Yale University schools of medicine have identified a genetic mutation in these patients which hastens the metabolism of certain amino acids, resulting in this type of autism. Senior author Joseph G. Gleeson, MD, professor in the UC San Diego Department of Neurosciences, and colleagues examined cultured some cells from these patients and […]Continue reading Branched Chain Amino Acids for Autism
