U.S. researchers analyzed blood samples from 395 women and found that mothers of children with autism were more likely to have certain antibodies that attack fetal brain proteins tied to a form of autism called Maternal Autoantibody-Related autism. The findings, published in the journal Translational Psychiatry, could lead to tests to predict autism risk as well as therapies to help prevent damage.
