Autism: Oxidative Stress, Inflammation, and Immune Abnormalities

Front Cover
CRC Press, Oct 26, 2009 - Medical - 452 pages
In 2007, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued an autism alarm, estimating that one in 150 children may be affected by autism spectrum disorder. Autism has been treated mainly with technical approaches: principally applied behavior analysis and psychopharmacology. The findings in this book implicate oxidative stress as a common feat
