Administration intraveineuse de sécrétine dans le traitement des troubles du spectre autistique (TSA)

Intravenous Secretin for Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)

By Williams, Katrina; Wray, John A.; Wheeler, Danielle M.


This online article, written in French, summarizes a research review conducted to determine whether intravenous infusion of secretin, a gastrointestinal hormone, is an effective treatment for autism. Findings consistently indicated that secretin was not associated with reductions in autism symptoms. The authors therefore suggest that secretin should not be recommended or administered as an autism treatment.
