Suramin Drug as a Possible Treatment for Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)

Medicine has evolved in a big way over the decades. New molecules have evolved into drugs, while some of the older, toxic and relatively inefficient drugs have fallen into disuse. An almost reverse trend also exists, where traditional and older medications are explored for use once again, either for the same, or for a different condition. One such drug is suramin,which has been used for the treatment of African sleeping sickness for around a century, and is now being evaluated for its possible benefits in autism patients.
