"Efficacy of DMSA Therapy in a Sample of Arab Children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder". This 2012 study published in Maedica, A Journal of Clinical Medicine, provides objective evidence that DMSA detoxification treatments cause a reduction of the heavy metal burden in the autistic, and that this reduction lessens neurological symptoms associated with ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorder).

Comment: While we don’t think that oral Dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) is the whole solution for autism, as this clinical study shows, using DMSA appropriately when indicated, can be helpful in reducing some symptoms typically associated with autism.
