Researchers may develop saliva test to diagnose autism

A spit test may one day be able to diagnose autism according to researchers at Clarkson University and the State University of New York at Plattsburgh.

Scientists at the universities have published the first study showing that children with autism spectrum disorder have differences in protein levels in their saliva when compared to typically developing children. The study appeared in the Jan. 27 issue of the journal Autism Research.
