Asperger Syndrome Mass Spectrometry

This study is a collaboration with Dr Sabine Bahn's group at the Institute of Biotechnology in Cambridge. Blood samples from individuals with Asperger Syndrome have been compared to controls, testing every known protein using Mass Spectrometry. Proteins that differ significantly have been followed up with measures of actual levels, using ELIZA techniques.
