CNS Healthcare Participating in Largest-Ever Global Autism Clinical Trial
CNS Healthcare is joining with nearly 180 medical facilities around the world to take part In the largest ever global clinical research program in children with autism, Asperger's Disorder, and (PDD-NOs).
Known for their research in the area of autism, CNS Healthcare researchers said that the research may help reveal valuable insights for the management of autism spectrum disorders, which now affects one in 88 children in the United States according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
"This is an exciting trial because there are currently no FDA-approved drugs to treat any of the core symptoms of these autism spectrum disorders," said Dr. Nandita Joshi. "Autism spectrum disorders impact so many members of our community and more research is still needed, which is why CNS Healthcare felt it was so important be a part of this study."
The prevalence of autism spectrum disorders has been increasing rapidly across the United States. A 2008 survey from the CDC found that the prevalence of autism spectrum disorders in the United States has increased by 23% since 2006 and 78 percent since 2002.
Dr. Joshi added that those interested in more information about the ConnectMe clinical research program should call their local office of CNS Healthcare (Orlando, FL at 407-425-5100;
