Updated: Jul 9, 2019


Summary

He was diagnosed at age of 2. Prior to treatment the child had severe verbal delay, problems with social communication, and inability to play with peers.
After 5 months of treatment he gained actively gained new vocabulary, started to communicate, found friends and became more confident and social.

Pregnancy and parturition: Pronounced toxicosis in the first trimester, prolonged labor of 7 hours. Long anhydrous period. Ultrasound of the brain after birth confirmed hypoxia.


Early signs and symptoms: Until the age of 6 months, he fell asleep poorly, he experienced Staphylococcus aureus infection, gastrointestinal tract disorders, and reduced emotional involvement. The child was diagnosed with ASD at age of 2 and did not understand the addressed speech, had absence of eye contact, absence of speech, did not play with children.


Signs and symptoms prior to treatment: Reduced vocabulary, could not build sentences, impaired eye contact, social/communication problems, lack of understanding of how to play and communicate with others, reduced understanding, inability to explain own feelings, difficulties with participating in conversation, obsession with electrical supplies, hearing hypersensitivity, and hyperactivity.


Infections: Detected IgG to CMV, EBV and rubella virus were above reference ranges;

Red and white blood cells (in relation to the reference ranges established in the local diagnostic centers): Erythrocytosis, neutropenia, increased red blood cells distribution by width (RDW), increased erythrocytes sedimentation rate (ESD)


Immunity (in relation to the reference ranges established in the local diagnostic centers: Increased NK cells count, decreased B-lymphocytes count, reduced T-helpers/T-suppressors ratio.


Changes after the 1st cycle: If there's a way to occupy him and keep him busy, the hyperactivity goes away. He began to pay more attention to his siblings: at the end of the 1st course, when invited to the play with his brother and sister, he expressed interest. Started trying to ask questions, but still does not realize that he would get an answer. His speech has become much clearer, and is able to describe his his day was in one sentence.


Changes after the 2nd cycle: The teachers in his kindergarten class say that he has become more connected with his peers, and found a friend. Speech has become clearer and has shown constant improvement, concentration and attention has increased, the perception to requests and questions increased, and has become capable of making some decisions regarding his routines.

Vocabulary was constantly increasing. Eye contact improved. Still there was a lack of perception (he did not understand the feelings of other people, there was no sympathy and no empathy). There was still an obsession with certain objects (especially household appliances). Decreased hypersensitivity to sounds, (for example, the work of electrical devices). The teachers said that he became more assiduous (he began to draw and sing better).


Changes after the 4th cycle: At the beginning of the 4th course he had chickenpox, but it was in a mild and short form. In comparison with the beginning, all teachers noted an improvement. He became even more assiduous and attentive, and made a friend in the kindergarten and took toys to his friend.

Every morning he went to kindergarten happily, because he had a friend there. Communication with other children improved, he started playing in the playground, riding a bicycle on his own, and then returns home by himself. Before this his mother was afraid to let him go somewhere on his own, and now she has started to give him more independence.

Changes after the 5th cycle: Periodically withdrew into himself. Since the beginning of this treatment, only after this course, parents noted such behavior.

But at the same time in kindergarten, the tutor noted that he had become more confident.

All blood and immune parameters are within reference ranges of the diagnostic center, apart from increased level of erythrocytes. IgG to EBV and rubella virus increased, IgG to CMV decreased.


Conclusion:

The parents noted that the treatment combined with corrective therapies was significantly more efficient, compared to corrective therapy alone and/or to other types of treatment that they underwent earlier.
