Objective: Considering the potential role of lymphocytes in the pathophysiology of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), we aimed to evaluate possible alterations of T cell pools in the lymphoid organs of an animal model of autism induced by valproic acid (VPA). Pregnant Swiss mice received a single intraperitoneal injection of 600 mg/kg of VPA (VPA group) or saline (control group) on day 11 of gestation. Male offspring were euthanized on postnatal day 60 for removal of thy ­muses, spleens, and a pool of inguinal, axillary and brachial lymph nodes. Cellularity was evaluated, and flow cytometry analysis was performed on cell ...

ConclusionsWe provide pharmacological profiles of indenoisoquinoline-derived Top1 inhibitors as paternalUbe3a unsilencers. All 13 tested compounds were effective at unsilencing paternalUbe3a, although with variable efficacy and potency. Indotecan (LMP400) demonstrated a better pharmacological profile ofUbe3a unsilencing compared to our previous lead compound, topotecan. Taken together, indotecan and its structural analogues are potential AS therapeutics whose translational potential in AS treatment should be further assessed.

AbstractThis review aims to identify and systematically evaluate the use of virtual assessments of social exclusion in persons with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). The authors screened articles for inclusion in accordance with the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis (PRISMA) guidelines. Ten peer-reviewed studies were reviewed to understand the current status of empirically based evidence of social exclusion in persons with ASD. Most studies used self-report questionnaires to assess affect, mood, and distress following simulated social interactions using the Cyberball game. Five studies used ...
