Clinical Study

SynapDx recently completed enrollment for the STORY study, one of the largest prospective, multi-site autism diagnostic studies. STORY included 880 children aged 18 months to fewer than 62 months at 20 developmental specialty centers in the US and Canada. The purpose of the study is to develop a blood test to assess a child’s risk of being diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) when suspected of developmental delay.
