Treating autism: Can stem cells help?


Often seen as an alternative to embryonic stem cells, iPS — or induced pluripotent stem cells — are adult stem cells reprogrammed to an embryonic-like state. IPS cells are increasingly of interest to scientists studying brain disorders such as autism, since accessing brain tissue is so difficult. Recent breakthroughs in autism genetics research have revealed that a small but significant minority of individuals with autism may have rare genetic changes that are potentially causative of their condition. more
