Siblings needed for research study: Why are boys more likely to have an autism spectrum disorder?

October 15

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 12:00 am on day 15 of the month, repeating until December 31, 2019

Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, and the Autism Research Institute are investigating whether the reason why boys are more affected than girls is related to differences in intestinal bacteria. We are seeking families to participate in this study who have boy and girl siblings with autism. These families will be mailed stool kits with instructions and will be asked to collect samples. A brief medical history will be taken. For additional information, please contact Harland Winter, MD at GenderDimorphism@autism.com or call 617-724-2004.
