The roundtable will discuss the case of relapsing-remitting neuropsychiatric and other symptoms in adolescents/adults with ASD diagnosis. Case studies will be presented, and the working group’s roadmap to develop a case for diagnosis and treatment (with existing medications) in this subgroup will be discussed.
Participants: Stanford, UC Davis, Wake Forest, and a number of physicians and parents
Chair: Gabriel Belfort, MD, PhD
Participants: Vice President, Clinical Development Sciences, Axial Therapeutics Inc.
A discussion to further the discovery of biomarkers for core symptoms and comorbidities affecting those with ASD diagnosis. Biomarker discovery has largely focussed on diagnosis; we will further the conversation on possible biomarkers to measure treatment response, which will accelerate the discovery of novel and effective therapeutics.
Chair: John Slattery, CEO, BioRosa Technologies.
Participants: UC Davis, Stanford, Wake Forest, BioROSA, and other industry participants.
This roundtable will discuss seizures in ASD with an emphasis on adolescents and adults. The discussion will include preventive diagnostics, treatments and evidence, and case studies.
