Autism spectrum disorders are early-onset chronic conditions of qualitatively impaired social interaction and reciprocal communication with an estimated prevalence rate of 0.6%. Autism is heterogeneous in phenotype and comorbidity. Its precise etiology remains largely an enigma, but twin and family studies indicate substantial hereditary fundamentals. In this report, we briefly review the progress of molecular genetic, environmental and (auto-)immunologic research in autism and similar… Expand
