Brain inflammation a hallmark of autism, large-scale analysis shows

While many different combinations of genetic traits can cause autism,
brains affected by autism share a pattern of ramped-up immune responses,
an analysis of data from autopsied human brains reveals. The study, a
collaborative effort between Johns Hopkins and the University of Alabama
at Birmingham, included data from 72 autism and control brains. It will
be published online Dec. 10 in the journal Nature Communications.
