Autism as a neuro developmental chronic disorder with dramatic increasing prevalence is a great burden on patients and families. Although the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has never approved a drug as useful in autism, and claims, that nutritional supplements are “unproven” and those parents who use these supplements for their autistic children are the victims of “marketers”. I am writing to discuss with you and with the NTNF readers that understanding the etiological mechanisms in autism and recording multiple biomarkers related to these etiologies can be used as target for nutritional intervention strategies.
