Article on Secretin clinical trial for Autism

In 2003, we were a site that participated in conducting a clinical trial for Secretin. The purpose of the study was to determine safety and efficacy of Secretin versus placebo in the treatment of Autism symptoms. 

Unfortunately, the study results found that there was no difference in symptom change between children on Secretin and those on placebo.   Here’s an article on the study results.
