Children's Autism Metabolome Project (CAMP)
"Identifying diagnostic signatures for autism spectrum disorder"
18-48 months
UC Davis MIND Institute
250 Participants
The CAMP study aims to develop a diagnostic tool for autism spectrum disorder that could be used in very young children. The earlier a child can be diagnosed, the faster they can receive helpful intervention. Currently, there is no accurate, biological, diagnostic test for autism. This study will compare two methods for diagnosing autism: 1) a laboratory test performed on a blood sample and 2) standard behavioral testing by a trained psychologist.
This study requires
1. One or two visits to the MIND Institute
2. Behavioral and Psychological assessments
3. A physical examination
4. A medical history review
5. A blood draw and a urine sample
Who can participate?
Children between the ages of 18-48 months who either:

1. Have a clinical diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
2. Are showing signs of Developmental Delay or ASD
3. Are typically developing
Participants can receive up to $50 per visit for up to 3 visits
