Current Research

Glucuronidation of BPA in Autism

Oxidative stress studies of phthalate and Bis-phenol A (BPA) metabolism via the
glucuronidation pathway
Children with ASD had lower amounts of glucuronidated phthalates
A subset of children with ASD had high levels of BPA and altered BPA metabolism
Is increased oxidative stress unique to children with ASD or is it present in other
neurodevelopmental disorders?
