Autism Strains, Autism Subsets

2 September 8, 2011, Fox News published the story, U.S. Researchers Identify Two Autism Strains in Major Breakthrough. (HERE)

New findings from the UC Davis Mind Institute were just announced at an international autism conference in Perth, Australia.  The Autism Phenome Project has been in the works since 2006 and they've now found two different types of autism.   Hopefully this discovery will help to determined the appropriate treatment a particular child according to Dr. David Amaral.

'The ultimate goal is when a child comes into the clinic, rather than saying you just have autism, to be able to say you have autism type A, or type B, or type C.

'And then based on that description, we would know whether there is a different treatment profile that we should recommend to the families.

'As an example, if a child has an immune form of autism, it may be that what we want to do is manipulate their immune system rather than trying something else that may be related to synaptic functions in the brain.'

Autism itself will continue to be a mystery however.  Amaral predicted that there are probably going to be lots more subtypes of autism.

'My guess is that there just isn't going to be a single diagnostic marker for autism, there's going to be a whole panel.'

I noticed that FOX reported that one of the study groups of boys "had enlarged brains and most had regressed into autism after 18 months of age."  Is anyone interested in what may have caused a suddenly regression into neurological disorder?

While David Amaral is studying the group of boys who regressed after 18 months, is he going to consider the routine vaccinations they received?

Robert MacNeil interviewed Amaral for PBS in April, 2011.

MacNeil asked, "What is your position today on vaccines and autism?"

In response to this, Amaral gave the broad disclaimer, "I think it's pretty clear that, in general, vaccines are not the culprit."

And the reason was the standard, studies show no link.  

Then he added this blockbuster, "It's not to say, however, that there is a small subset of children who may be particularly vulnerable to vaccines."

He went on to say, "And in their case, having the vaccines, or particular vaccines, particularly in certain kinds of situations -- if the child was ill, if the child had a precondition. Like a mitochondrial defect. Vaccinations for those children actually may be the environmental factor that tipped them over the edge of autism. And I think it is incredibly important, still, to try and figure out what, if any, vulnerabilities, in a small subset of children, might make them at risk for having certain vaccinations."

MacNeil asked if more studies of these possibly susceptible kids should be done.

Amaral answered, "Yeah. So I think, personally, it's a reasonable thing to do. Because I think that autism is ultimately going to have many, many causes. There are going be many, many subsets of children that are going to have different etiologies. Some of which are going be more environmental, some of which are going be more genetic. And I frankly don't think that there's going to be a large group of children that -- their autism is caused by their standard immunizations. But you know, it could be a small subset."

When the lead researcher of an autism study admits that vaccines may be a factor, it's time we all woke up to the possibility.  It's also time scientists stopped merely identifying the disorder.  An epidemic is disabling a generation of children and we must stop it.

@ Barry,

I believe we should stop waiting for vaccine cartels to admit, what we know and what is obvious to all honest scientists, physicians and parents, that TOXIC VACCINES are responsible for autism, injuries and death of millions of children and adults around the globe. These cartels will never admit it, because if they did, they would go to prisons for the rest of their life and would lose all their bloody money.

IMO, we must act decisively and collectively on what we know. We must protect future generations of children from vaccine-induced death or injures by refusing vaccines and we must keep informing the people we know about dangers of current vaccines. There is no vaccine, which is safe, according to VAERS. We must remember this and totally ignore the vaccine establishment.

@ Sarah,

I am convinced that most ingredients and perhaps whole vaccines are made in China or India now. I don't trust ANY vaccine, they all contain toxic substances, they all can kill and injure. We have no idea what is in them and it is insanity to allow anybody to inject unknown foreign substances to our children or our own bodies.

The differences between cases might be due to different vaccine factors (e.g. thimerosal, aluminum, live viruses or other poisons present in vaccines) being the primary cause of this encephalopathy.

EXACTLY!!!!

Of course doctors promote that the cause is "anything but" vaccines". Not only does this truth carry criminal implications for them, it doesn't really make them look too smart either.

The study screaming loudest in this entire debate, is the one that the medical community refuses to do. In spite of legislation introduced by representatives Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) and Christopher Smith (R-NJ), to require the FIRST EVER comprehensive, comparative study of vaccinated vs. unvaccinated populations.... that study remains undone to this day

An interesting footnote however, is that Veterinary medicine doesn’t appear to have the same fear of discovery

http://www.naturalrearing.com/coda/a_science_of_vaccine_damage.html

Above is a link to a report called “SCIENCE OF VACCINE DAMAGE”. It seems a team at Purdue has already conducted studies on dogs, to see if vaccines cause changes in the immune system of the dogs which might lead to life threatening, immune-mediated diseases. And they found that the vaccinated, but NOT the non-vaccinated dogs, developed autoantibodies to many of their own biochemicals, including fibronectin, laminin, DNA, albumin, cytochrome C, cardiolipin and collagen. These are curious findings to say the least, and this is well worth the read if you have time.

The most enlightening paragraph IMO appears near the end, and reads ”.. vaccines are the stealth bomb of the medical world. They are used to catapult invaders inside the castle walls where they can wreak havoc, with none of us any the wiser. So rather than experiencing frank viral diseases such as the 'flu, measles, mumps and rubella we are allowing the viruses to win anyway – but with cancer, leukaemia and other inflammatory or autoimmune (self-attacking) diseases taking their place.”..

Many professionals want to treat the symptoms and not even concern themselves with the cause. Or ask, why are these children so sick!

I had a meeting yesterday with one of the top 'experts' of the educational department. He was becoming frustrated because every time he asked a question or tried to 'air' his knowledge about Autism I would attack with a clear and concise answer.

These professionals simply do not do their homework and this 'expert' is in charge of my son and thousand's of other primary school children on the A.S.D.

"Our research shows the condition is caused by an altered immune system. The one thing we are sure is not causing it is something designed to alter the immune system, er you know - vaccines..."

I have one that regressed at 3.5 years, one born with symptoms and two that stopped progressing in development at 1.5 years. They all recovered on the same treatments. Sorry, but I am just not seeing the cause being different per onset or large head. Most of mine had large heads; all, of course have immune dysfunction. I never heard of a child with autism who didn't have immune dysfunction. This study just isn't informative, but it's good to see that autism is being looked at from a medical angle.

"If the child was ill." My child had double ear infections, with snot pouring down his face, the day the pediatrician decided to "catch him up" on his vaccines (double them) at age one and ALSO give him a flu shot. Perhaps my child falls into that "subset." I just didn't know any better.

Linda Higgins

I believe that getting scientists to admit that any amount of Autism may come from vaccines is a giant leap. If we can get the guys who are sure it isn't vaccines (at least most of the time) to look at if it could be a cause some of the time and when,
then we are making some progress. I have always believed that there are several causes for autism, probably no one group can account for all of the autism, so let's befriend those who believe that there is some reason to look at things they didn't believe at all before but re now willing to compromise on and get them to put their research where their mouth is!

Sarah

Veritas,

Not to sound paranoid but I want to know where these vaccines are being manufactured (ex: China?) and by whom. Also who has access to the supply chain. I have been reading a lot about poorly regulated, toxic imports, and that includes drugs that are often mislabeled or contaminated, that are coming into the US from overseas. A lot of people are getting sick in the US and it's not just autism.

The NYT did a series on this and it's very troubling:

I wonder if the large brains are due to swelling from chronic inflammation. I believe Pardo did a study linking inflammation in the brain to autism. Perhaps if we address the swelling/inflammation we can see improvement. My son has been on an anti-inflammatory called Lutimax and it has really made a difference.

grandmaonamission

Join Stop Calling it Autism( SCIA) research and make your doctor look for the vaccine induced autoimmune disease behind your child's illness.

A "small" subset may come from vaccine injuries - well if you just count small children with autism that have immune problems - those running unexplained temperatures over and over again.

Like a finger in the dike of vaccines cause no harm things will evenually leak out like thyroid trouble, peanut allergies, obsesity, parkinson, diabetities, bipolar, schizophrenia, and what ever the heck my husband has- with his muscles wasting away.
