Description The author, a parent of a child with autism, describes an n=1 case in which his child’s autism symptoms dramatically and rapidly improved following administration of a common antibiotic. The author asserts that this finding is not unusual in the autism population and that, when combined with prior recent medical research, suggests that a link between autism and the microbiome in some children is not just plausible, but in fact likely for some meaningful percentage of cases. The author argues for increased funding for a more thorough examination of links between autism and the microbiome and poses a series of questions to be further examined in future research.Keywords: autism; microbiome; antibiotic; n=1; N of One; vancomycin; amoxicillin(Published: 24 March 2015)Citation: Microbial Ecology in Health & Disease 2015, 26: 26382 - http://dx.doi.org/10.3402/mehd.v26.26382
