PARIS: Paris Autism Research International Sib-Pair Study
The Paris Autism Research International Sib-pair (PARIS) Study has been launched as a collaborative project by Prof. M. Leboyer (Paris) and Prof. C. Gillberg (Göteborg) in the 2000s. Its main goal is to join […]
Around 1% of children are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), yet there are currently no drugs designed specifically to treat their main symptoms. Working to change this is the IMI-funded EU-AIMS project. The […]
Background on the genetics of ASD
Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are a heterogeneous group of pervasive neurodevelopmental disorders affecting approximately 1% of the population. The diagnosis of ASD is based on impairments in reciprocal social communication and stereotyped behaviors. Behind […]
Phelan-McDermid Syndrome: from mechanisms to treatments
Our team identified the first mutations in the SHANK3 gene, showing it’s role in autism and Phelan-McDermid Syndrome (PMS). Thanks to a donation from the French Association of Phelan-McDermid Syndrome, we will continue the […]
The serotonin-NAS-melatonin pathway and susceptibility to ASD
Sleep difficulties are a major concern for families with ASD, but are often considered as an epiphenomenon, and therefore do not catch the attention of the medical and scientific community. In 2008, we reported […]
