" None of the women were told they were part of a study, nor were they told what drug they were taking. The study found that twice as many of the DES-treated mothers had miscarriages and small babies. "

Over the past decade, mutations to more than 60 different genes have been linked with autism spectrum disorder (#ASD), including de novo mutations, which occur spontaneously and aren’t inherited. But much of #autism still remains unexplained.

A new study of nearly 6,000 families implicates a hard-to-find category of de novo mutations: those that occur after conception, and therefore affect only a subset of cells.

Experimental animal results could have been used to predict the adverse effects of #diethylstilbestrol DES observed in humans in the early 1970s: DES had been reported to be carcinogenic in mice in the 1930s, while experiments in the 1960s had provided evidence that exposure during pregnancy could result in an increased cancer risk in the progeny.
