GABA, bumetanide, ketogenic diet, channelopathies, histamine … and all other things autism

A Guest Post by UK Charity Treating Autism

If you are a reader of this blog and interested in all things autism, especially those things regularly discussed here, you may want to find yourself in London on the weekend of 18-19 June, attending a conference organised by a UK charity Treating Autism. The location is Brunel University campus - a stone’s throw from Heathrow airport, or a fun tube ride from Eurostar St Pancras station.

If you can only attend one day make sure it is Sunday 19th, as this day will feature presentations on most promising treatment approaches in autism including the one on bumetanide for autism titled ‘Reducing symptoms of autism by addressing dysfunctional GABA: A chloride concentration story’ by none other than Dr Lemonnier himself.

Prof Dr Athanasios Evangeliou of Papageorgiou Hospital Thessaloniki will be giving not one but two presentations: ‘Autism, epilepsy and metabolic disorders’ (am) and ‘Alternative” treatments for Autism in mainstream clinical settings’ (pm). He will be discussing many different things, amongst them the merits of screening evaluations and identification of metabolic biomarkers in autism with therapeutic relevance, such as for example biotin, B complex vitamins, branched chain amino acids and ketogenic diet. (To jog your memory a little see here and here.)

John Rodakis of NofOne Research Foundation will be flying over from the States to update us on the latest sulforaphane and suramin autism trials, Dr Coutinho from Oxford Uni will reveal their latest findings on maternal autoantibodies in autism, and there will be a very special presentation by a very special reader and a regular contributor to comment section of this blog – as I am not saying more J you will have to find out by clicking on this link

Hope to see you there!!
