Biomarkers

Biomarkers for early diagnosis of autism.


There are currently no known autism defining biomarkers, therefore a diagnosis of autism relies entirely upon behavioural evaluation.


Biomarkers are measurable, objective indicators (as opposed to those subjectively reported by a person) of a condition or biological state. Examples of biomarkers include blood pressure, heart rate and other laboratory tests of biological samples.


Through exploring the interactions between gut microbiome, metabolome, epigenome and immune function, GEMMA aims to discover biomarkers that may help the early diagnosis of autism.
