Feeding mice an immunity-boosting probiotic appears to ease autism-like symptoms finds a study led by researchers at the California Institute of Technology. Scientists used a technique called maternal immune activation in pregnant mice to induce autism-like behavior and neurological patterns in their offspring. They found that the gut microbial community of the offspring differed markedly from that of a control group of mice. When the mice with the autism-like symptoms were fed Bacteriodes Fragilis, a microbe known to bolster the immune system, their abnormal behaviors subsided (Cell, Dec. 19, 2014).
