Healthy Living: Suramin For Autism?

CDC estimates that one in 68 children in the U.S. are on the autism spectrum.

Right now, there are no FDA approved treatments for the disorder or its symptoms, which can include difficulty with social skills, communication and repetitive behavior.

That’s why results of a small clinical trial in San Diego have grabbed the attention of researchers and families.

We break down why in Healthy Living.

Dr. Naviaux says next there will be several phase two trials to determine safety and efficacy for Suramin.

He suspects it will be three to five years before phase three trials begin.
