In a first, scientists have discovered a way to accurately predict whether a child has autism spectrum disorder by analysing a blood sample, an advance that opens the door to earlier diagnosis and potential future development of therapeutics. The test is the first physiological test for autism spectrum disorder (ASD), researchers said.

Research shows that early intervention can improve development, but diagnosis currently depends on clinical observation of behaviour, an obstacle to early diagnosis and treatment. Most children are not diagnosed with ASD until after age 4 years.

The study was published in the journal PLOS Computational Biology.
