Is a Mysterious Virus Responsible for Some Cases of Autism?

I’ve written a lot on this blog about the immune system in autism and especially about the chronic inflammation that seems to be present in at least some if not most cases of autism. With that background in mind let’s imagine you are an immunologist.

As an expert in immune problems you decide you want to explain ALL of the observations about the immune system’s interactions with the brain in cases of autism. But that’ isn’t enough to satisfy you. Now you decide you want to take it one step further by explaining what caused these immunological problems.  What data could you draw upon to sort through this problem and come to a workable hypothesis?


Stay tuned – I’ll have more about this mysterious virus later today.
