Chemical Markers in Urine of Autistic Children?

Are There Chemical Markers in the Urine of Autistic Children?

That’s a question on the minds of researchers at the University of Buffalo for several years now.

UofB chemist Troy Wood and his team have been working on finding molecular compounds in autistic children’s urine.  Troy is hopeful those compounds could become biological markers in tests to diagnose autism at earlier ages that definitely would be more objective and effective than current diagnostic procedures.

Basically, he and his research team are looking for chemical clues.  Personally, I’d love to be in that laboratory checking out spectrographic readouts.
