Immuron to Cooperate with Australian Universities on Autism Research
Jul 20 16
Immuron Limited announced it has formed a strategic partnership with three Australian Research Institutes to understand how the genetic basis underlying Autism Spectrum Disorder relates to changes to the gut, and how Immuron's anti-LPS IMM-124E compound affects changes in mouse models for autism. This understanding will provide information on how alterations in the gut microbiome occur and potentially identify targets for the development of clinical therapies to restore gut balance and improve the quality of life for ASD patients. This Academic collaboration is made up of a cross functional disciplinary scientific team with the capabilities to investigate the brain, the gut and the microbes, and also to translate this research into meaningful patient outcomes. The members of the scientific team are Dr. Elisa Hill (University
of Melbourne: Neuroscientist, Gut-Brain axis and Mouse models of Autism), Assoc. Prof. Ashley Franks (La Trobe University: Microbiologist, Microbial communities structures and functions) and Professor Ravi Savarirayan (Murdoch Childrens Research Institute /University of Melbourne: clinical geneticist, paediatrician and translational researcher). The Gastrointestinal (GI) microbiota are well known to influence mood and behaviour. There is growing evidencethat gut bacterial communities (i.e. the microbiota) are altered in patients with ASD, however studies in patients have limitations due to the difficulty in controlling environmental factors. The microbiota in the mouse GI tract is similar to that in humans and studying the microbiome in this model enables environmental factors to be controlled.
