2001 Research

Autism: Evidence of Association with Adenosine Deaminase Genetic Polymorphism

  • Study researched children with autism and control groups from 2 different populations in Italy
  • Focused on the Asn allele of the ADA gene
  • Results showed that Asn allele found more frequently in individuals with autism compared to controls

2000 Research

  • A case-control study
  • Included 91 individuals with autism and 152 controls
  • Focused on ADA1 and ADA2 allozymes of the ADA gene
  • Also researched familial linkage of the ADA2 allozyme and characteristics of individuals carrying the ADA2 allozyme
