Autism disorder is a complex neuro-developmental disease characterized by impaired social interaction and repetitive behavior. Although family history and twin studies may suggest a genetic root to the disorder, environmental factors are believed to be at the origin of the immune and neural dysregulation observed in most autism disorders.
More precisely, it is our understanding that patients who suffer from autism present a genetically reduced capacity to excrete toxins and have been exposed to damaging toxins at critical periods of their development.

For this reason, the strategy involved in stem cell treatment for autistic patients always includes a personalized detox protocol that is defined upon arrival of the patients in partnering clinics, based on the results of the initial tests searching for toxins.

If mercury and other known neuronal poisons are detected, an adapted detoxification program prior to stem cell therapy is highly recommended.

Once free from these poisons, the autistic brain now have a chance to repair itself and that's what Embryonic Stem cells injections will trigger. Like in all brain injuries, the damaged areas of the brain will benefit from the presence of embryonic stem cells that reactivate the host's neural repair system. ( see the brain injury page )

The best results for autistic children are observed after three weeks of repeated injections of Embryonic Stem Cells. A minimum of 3 injections is usually recommended.
