"Calcium signaling, which is a key regulator of the growth and development of neurons, was found to have genetic roots involved with the disorders in the study," says Dr. Melillo. "This opens the door for theories that have suggested genetics can contribute to prevention of psychiatric diseases such as autism."
With April marking Autism Awareness month, Dr. Melillo adds that it is important to examine findings that offer support for new ways of treating autism. "This study offers a scientific perspective in the way psychiatric diseases have been treated traditionally and the new direction for treatment," says Dr. Melillo. "To ensure patients receive the best possible care, a multi-faceted approach that utilizes prevention measures as well as ways to cope with a genetic disposition tends to be in the best interest of the child."
