    What is interesting about this study (easy to understand article below) is recognition of a subset of autism that can be defined by a dysfunctioning immune system.

    That's good news. Hopefully this'll lead to a paradigm shift in how autism is looked at. My two cents is that it's a retrovirus or gut bacteria causing the immune problems.
