Autism Research: Response to Folinic Acid in Cerebral Folate Deficiency

Low Levels of 5-Methytetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) in Brain Corrected by Treatment with Folinic Acid in Girl with Autism

Autism Research: Low levels of folate in the brain and spinal cord have been found in many children with autism.  Often these low cerebral levels of folate exist despite normal levels of folate being found in the rest of the body.  A 2005 case report describes such a situation.  The report was published in an article titled Cerebral Folate Deficiency with Developmental Delay, Autism, and … [Read more...]

Autism Research: Autoimmunity to Folate Receptors and Lack of Cerebral Folate in Autism

The Effect of Folate Receptor Autoantibodies Studied in Terms of Brain Fluid Levels of 5-MTHF (A Form of Folinic Acid)

Autism Research: Poor movement of folate into the central nervous system (CNS) has been found in at least two types of autism spectrum disorders.  One of these is infantile low-functioning autism with neurological abnormalities.  Previous to this study, little was known about the role that folate receptor autoimmunity played in the reduced movement of folate into the CNS in autism.  This … [Read more...]
