NIH looking for XMRV in children with autism


Senior Member
This was just posted over at Age of Autism:

As you may be aware, NIH intramural researchers are examining the XMRV retrovirus in samples from approximately 100 children in an autism subtyping study: Neuroimmunologic Investigations of Autism Spectrum Disorders. You can access further information on the study via the NIH Research Portfolio Online Reporting Tools at http://projectreporter.nih.gov/reporter.cfm. Since final analyses of the study are not complete and have not been published, we do not yet have any results to provide. The researchers will share the results in the future after completion of the data analysis.
