Guest: Santiago Martinez, MD
What is the relationship between immunity and autism? Do the immune systems of those with autism function differently than the rest of the population? Dr. Santiago Martinez, clinical assistant professor at Florida State University College of Medicine, joins host Dr. Ketan Sheth to discuss the immune systems of autism patients. Is there any evidence that might suggest that autoimmune disorders in mothers can somehow contribute to the development of autism in their children?
