LETTER FOR PARENTS

  Dear Parents

 

We are currently conducting a clinical trial involving children (2-12 years old) diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The study aims to test the potential connection between the immune system and autism. This requires completing a brief medical questionnaire which investigates family history of autoimmune diseases. The child will then be asked to donate 5 cc of blood on a one time basis, in order to investigate immune parameters in the blood.

 

Our research team is collaborating with medical centers in Israel and abroad, and we already have all of the necessary approvals from the Helsinki ethics committees and the Israeli Ministry of Health.

 

Families interested in participating in the research or interested in receiving further information are asked to contact the research coordinator Leah Hochbaum at leah@cell-el.com.

 

Thank you for your interest
