Summary: In order to treat those with antidepressant resistant depression, researchers suggest the integrity of the blood-brain barrier be restored. Between 30% and 50% of those suffering from depression respond either poorly or not at all to antidepressants,” says main author Caroline Ménard, professor at Université Laval’s Faculty of Medicine and researcher at the Cervo Brain Research Centre. […] Among the most prominent findings of immediate clinical importance, we found that females received a first diagnosis of ASD at a later age than males, potentially due to more advanced language abilities in females with ASD. In summary, this is the first analysis of a large, population‐based U.S. cohort with ASD. Given the depth of sampling, the RI‐CART study reflects an important new resource for studying ASD in a representative U.S. population.
