Stem cell therapy in autism: experience and outcomes
Recorded Wednesday, December 12, 2018 | 11:00 AM CST
This free Share the Science webinar presentation features Dr. Michael Chez, one of the primary investigators of a pediatric autism trial using a double blinded placebo-controlled study using autologous umbilical cord stem cells. Dr. Chez will present a broad overview of past and current trials applying stem cell therapy to autism spectrum disorders, as well as future therapeutic opportunities.
Dr. Chez will begin by offering insight into what defines autism, prior therapeutic interventions in autism, and theories behind the use of stem cell therapy in autism. He will then review experiences to date in animal models and in human subjects using various sources of stem cells, and he will discuss the clinical outcomes, strengths, and weaknesses of stem cell studies in autism.
