More than 100 genes appear to be involved in autism spectrum disorders, according to researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. "Autism exists on a spectrum, and many people wouldn't need any new, targeted drug therapies because they're doing fine," said senior author Joseph Buxbaum, PhD, professor of psychiatry, neuroscience, genetics and genomic sciences at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. He added, “Using newer analytic techniques, the researchers were able to zero in on 102 genes associated with ASD.”
