Hyperprolactinemia is a common adverse effect observed in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) during pharmacotherapy with risperidone. The main aim of this study was to investigate important clinical factors influencing the prolactin response in risperidone-treated Thai ASD. A total of 147 children and adolescents (127 males and 20 females) aged(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of CYP2D6 gene polymorphisms on plasma concentrations of risperidone and its metabolite in Thai children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). METHODS All 97 autism spectrum disorder patients included in this study had been receiving risperidone at least for 1 month. The(More)
Autism is a severe neurodevelopmental disorder. Many susceptible causative genes have been identified. Most of the previous reports showed the relationship between the Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) gene and etiology of autism. In order to identify HLA-B alleles associated with autism in Thai population, we compared the frequency of HLA-B allele in 364(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to identify the impact of pharmacogenetic markers associated with prolactin concentration in risperidone-treated children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorders. METHODS One hundred forty-seven children and adolescents with autism, aged 3 to 19 years, received risperidone. The clinical data of patients were(More)
Single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) among drug-metabolizing enzymes and transporters (DMETs) influence the pharmacokinetic profile of drugs and exhibit intra- and interethnic variations in drug response in terms of efficacy and safety profile. The main objective of this study was to assess the frequency of allelic variants of drug absorption,(More)
Background: Atypical antipsychotics have been found to be associated with hyperuricemia. Risperidone, one of the atypical antipsychotics, might be related to the hyperuricemia among autism spectrum disorder (ASD) patients. The aims of this study were to determine the prevalence of hyperuricemia in ASD patients treated with risperidone and to determine(More)
The present study sought to investigate the genetic variants in drug metabolizing enzyme and transporter (DMET) genes associated with steady-state plasma concentrations of risperidone among Thai autism spectrum disorder (ASD) patients. ASD patients taking risperidone for at least 1 month were enrolled for this pharmacogenomic study. Genotyping profile was(More)
Some autistic children also have symptoms of depression , anxiety or obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Aromatic anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs) may be used as a mood-stabilizing medication to treat these symptoms, including carbamazepine (CBZ), oxcarbazepine (OX-CBZ), and lamotrigene (LMG). Moreover, one in every four autistic spectrum disorder children have(More)
