Endocannabinoid Signaling in Autism


Published on

The endocannabinoid system plays a crucial part in the pathophysiology of autism. Major protective brain mechanisms are interrupted and neuroinflammation ensues. Organophosphates are potent inhibitors of crucial brain enzymes. The systemic consequences of defective microglial signaling, nagalase surges, and GcMAF metabolism are tightly interconnected into the basic idea that autism is an environmentally triggered neuroinflammatory condition.

Renal and hepatic impairment are also frequent and usually reflect reduced organ perfusion. -Bradberry 2004
