The promising role of DSF in fighting against autism

Autism spectrum disorders have an increasing prevalence characterized by enormous individual, family and social costs. There are growing interest and more resources addressed to researching the causes of this disease, which are still far from being fully and exhaustively defined. However, an interaction between genetic and environmental factors is implicated, converging [...]

Gut and brain working in synergy to fight autism

New evidences recognize the microbiota-gut-brain axis as a key modulator of neuropsychic health.  Interestingly, probiotics, recently named “psychobiotics”, may modulate brain activity and function. In this framework, Elisa Santocchi and colleagues wanted to understand if bacteriotherapy could be a valid strategy in autism, possibly improving the behavioral profiles of children with [...]

Autism, dysbiosis and microbiota

Autism spectrum disorders have dramatically increased in recent decades. We now know that genetics plays a role but doesn’t explain everything and that other elements are at stake in this complex multi-factorial neurological disease. The microbiota-gut-brain axis is at the heart of advanced research. Autism: The microbiota-gut-brain axis is being [...]
