Re: IVIG for Autism

I posted this is the other forum as well..hope this helps you:

Do a Google search on Dr. Vijendra Singh ( he has his own Wikipedia page at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vijendra_K._Singh ).

He is out of Utah and is a pioneer in IVIG treatment for Autism. His hypothesis is that many cases of autism are triggered by an autoimmune disorder.....he has an interesting theory because it states that the MMR vaccine causes the body's immune system to go haywire in some children, leading to autism-like symptoms.

IVIG infusions are a way of course-correcting this immune system malfunction. While some children have not responded to treatment, there is clinicaly significant information from Singh that some children with autism respond to treatment.

Treatment is EXPENSIVE.......try to see if there are ways for insurance to cover it. Also, make sure you know where the IVIG is coming from. There is a big black market out there for this stuff because it is so expensive....make sure the product being used on your child can be traced straight to the manufacturer. Good luck.
