Chinese scientists develop jab to treat autism: Report

Chinese scientists create first injection to reverse autism symptoms through genomic editing in mice; potential treatment method applicable to other genetic neurodevelopmental disorders; disorder hinders interaction, communication leads to repetitive behaviours and intense interests; researchers target MEF2C gene mutations; treatment restores MEF2C protein levels, reverses behavioural abnormalities; disorder in some patients caused by complex mutations.
