Aspirin ameliorates experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis through interleukin-11–mediated protection of regulatory T cells | Science Signaling

Aspirin ameliorates experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis through interleukin-11–mediated protection of regulatory T cells | Science Signaling: Aspirin is a common pain reliever that inactivates the enzyme cyclooxygenase, which is required for the synthesis of inflammatory prostaglandins and thromboxane. Mondal et al . found that aspirin also reduced the development of disease in mice with experimental autoimmune encephalitis (EAE), a model of multiple sclerosis (MS), by reversing the depletion of regulatory T cells (Tregs) that occurs during the disease. The effects of aspirin required the cytokine IL-11, which was itself sufficient to promote Treg stability and protect the mice from EAE development. These data suggest that low-dose aspirin regimens may benefit patients with MS.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a human disease that results from autoimmune T cells targeting myelin protein that is expressed within the central nervous system. In MS, the number of FoxP3-expressing regulato…

A pilot dose finding study of pioglitazone in autistic children | Molecular Autism | Full Text

A pilot dose finding study of pioglitazone in autistic children | Molecular Autism | Full Text: Pioglitazone is a promising compound for treatment of core autism spectrum disorder (ASD) symptoms as it targets multiple relevant pathways, including immune system alterations. This pilot study aimed to elucidate the maximum tolerated dose, safety, preliminary evidence of efficacy, and appropriate outcome measures in autistic children ages 5–12 years old. We conducted a 16-week prospective cohort, single blind, single arm, 2-week placebo run-in, dose-finding study of pioglitazone. Twenty-five participants completed treatment. A modified dose finding method was used to determine safety and dose response among three dose levels: 0.25 mg/kg, 0.5 mg/kg, and 0.75 mg/kg once daily. Maximum tolerated dose: there were no serious adverse events (SAEs) and as such the maximum tolerated dose within the range tested was 0.75 mg/Kg once daily. Safety: overall, pioglitazone was well tolerated. Two parti…

OBJECTIVES: To estimate the national prevalence of parent-reported autism spectrum disorder (ASD) diagnosis among US children aged 3 to 17 years as well as their treatment and health care experiences using the 2016 National Survey of Children’s Health (NSCH).

METHODS: The 2016 NSCH is a nationally representative survey of 50 212 children focused on the health and well-being of children aged 0 to 17 years.

We calculated weighted prevalence estimates of ASD, compared health care experiences of children with ASD to other children, and examined factors associated with increased likelihood of medication and behavioral treatment.

RESULTS: Parents of an estimated 1.5 million …
