Comments on "Secretin and Autism: A Two-Part Clinical Investigation" by M. G. Chez et al.
Rimland, Bernard
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v30 n2 p95 Apr 2000
This response to Chez et al. (EC 625 006) suggests that the data provided by their study of the gastrointestinal hormone secretin in the treatment of autism do not support the negative conclusions reported. It identifies methodological problems that biased the results toward a negative outcome and concludes that secretin appears to be a safe and beneficial treatment for autism. (DB)
