This is the most noteworthy case –report I think I have ever read. It is on a par, even more impressive than the case report on spironolactone case I reported a few years ago.
So she received a specific anti-TNF therapy and made significant cognitive recovery.
I selected spironolactone because it was well documented to reduce TNF-alpha. I knew about Chez’ findings.
In addition the child gained 2 years of language on specific language testing. So here are two separate drugs acting on TNF-alpha showing significant benefits for language and social issues in ASD.
Let’s add one more study to this.
Pioglitazone is a powerful inhibitor of NF kappa B and that means it reduces TNF alpha. Here is what it did for children with autism.
With that I will let you work on these concepts. Clearly TNF alpha is a serious issue for many children with ASD.
