ABSTRACT
The study, which appeared in the November 2001 issue of "Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry," found that patients with autism who received a form of the hormone derived from swine showed no statistically significant improvements in the core symptoms of the disorder when compared to when the same patients received a placebo. In certain secondary measures of autism, patients receiving secretin also showed no improvement when compared to when they received a placebo. Previous studies have also tested laboratory manufactured secretin as a treatment for autism.
