Parents of autistic children who have read my recent article on suramin are asking me when the next clinical trial will begin, and how their children can apply to get into it.
Suramin research for autism is funded through private philanthropy. Groups that have supported the research to date include the William Wright Family Foundation; the Christini Fund; the Autism Research Institute; the Lennox Foundation; the Gupta Family and Satya Fund; and the N of One: Autism Research Foundation.
The Jane Botsford Johnson Foundation provided support for the essential pre-clinical studies and equipment used in the suramin trial.
