New Research – Maternal Antibodies Linked to 1 in 4 Cases of Autism in Kids

Antibodies in Mom Linked to Autism in Kids Jul 10, 2013 By Salynn Boyles, Contributing Writer, MedPage Today [Reviewed by Zalman S. Agus, MD; Emeritus Professor, Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and Dorothy Caputo, MA, BSN, RN, Nurse Planner].

Maternal autoantibodies that target key proteins in the fetal brain could explain almost one in four cases of autism, according to two studies published online this week in the journal Translational Psychiatry.

In one study, researchers from the University of California, Davis MIND Institute identified seven antigens specific to autism and then showed that the antibodies to these antigens were present in the blood of 23% of mothers who had children with the disorder and less than 1% of mothers with normally developing children.

In a second study, female rhesus monkeys exposed while pregnant to the autism-specific antibodies from the blood of mothers of children with autism gave birth to offspring that displayed behavioral traits consistent with the disorder. Male monkeys, but not females, born to the antibody-exposed mothers also had brain growth patterns consistent with male children with autism, seen in neuroimaging studies.

  1. Antibodies are affected by the toxic load of aluminum, embalming fluid, thimerosal (49.6% mercury) polysorbates, peanut products, ether, squalene, tar and petroleum SHOT INTO PEOPLE in the name of so -called Health? We have the sickest most chronically ill population ever seen as a result of this mad science project and money making scheme. 1 in 5 kids are Neurologically Impaired, 1 in 6 Developmentally Disabled, 1 in 50 Autistic (1 in 25 boys in some areas) 1 in 10 ADHD. I hold this accountable for the Bankruptcy of America. Medical insurance, taxes paying for billions of these toxic shots, companies not affording health care costs, job losses, people losing their homes because of heart disease or cancer, it has busted us all.”Recovering Autism, ADHD, & Special Needs.”

  2. Yes, we agree with most of the above comment.
    Is this so called “study” an attempt to hide or deny the damage done by vaccines?
    With the callous disregard for children’s health by assaulting them with multiple toxic infectious vaccines ….we can expect anything from this industry and their associates.
    A vote of NO confidence is the best they deserve,

  3. Very depressing – this research WOULD seem to indicate that for those who dont get adverse vaccine reactions you can just pass them on to the next generation of BOYS!

    thats kind of SCARY!

  4. So they are injecting human proteins into monkeys; that alone might cause problems in the monkeys, it seems to me, like auto-immune problems? I am wondering how anyone can patent a natural protein. They did not create it. They don’t own it. Still maybe some good will come of this research. It might be interesting to see peer reviews.

  5. That explains why my child is Autistic but what about my other child who isn’t Autistic!

    Another “so-called” study trying to distract us from the real cause of Autism.

    Mum to vaccine injured son.
