Prenatal fever linked to autism risk
(Reuters Health) – Children born to mothers who experienced fever, especially multiple fevers, during the second trimester of pregnancy are at increased risk for developing autism spectrum disorder (ASD), a new study suggests. Researchers found that mothers who experienced a fever over 99 degrees F (37.22 C) during the second trimester of pregnancy had a 40 percent increased risk of having a child with ASD compared to women who had no fevers. But none of the women who used ibuprofen to treat a fever during pregnancy gave birth to children later diagnosed with autism, the researchers note. “What is particularly important about our findings is that it not only strengthens the evidence for a particular pathway for ASD, but it also suggests that we may be very close to understanding how to safely mitigate or prevent some outcomes by directing prevention or intervention strategies toward this pathway,” said lead author Dr. Mady Hornig of Columbia University’s...

Sensory and diet therapies for autism lack strong evidence
(Reuters Health) – – There is little or no evidence to support many popular therapies that aim to help children with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs), according to two new reviews of existing research. ASDs are developmental disorders that can lead to social, communication and behavioral challenges. One review found some evidence that therapies targeting sensory issues provided at least short-term benefits, but the second review found little evidence to support the use of special diets or nutritional supplements for children with ASDs. “I think they show how scattered the information we have is,” said Catherine Lord, who directs the NewYork-Presbyterian Center for Autism and the Developing Brain in White Plains, New York. “We need better ways of collecting systematic data about the treatments,” said Lord, who was not involved with either review. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that one in 68 children in the...
