We are certianly well aware of these antibodies as an etiologic cuase of autism. I was not aware of any commercial company offering the testing and as yet do not know the specificity of this testing i.e. what is the likelihood if they are present you actually have a baby with ASD. I will certianly look into it.

TY for your response. I asked the company to contact me with any information when the test becomes commercially available. If I hear from them I will forward along to you. Best, Kerry
