The aViation Study

Can we help children and adolescents with Autism make sense of the world?

To date, no medications have been approved to treat ASD's core symptoms. So we're looking for 300 children and adolescents with 'high-functioning' ASD to join the aViation study. The aViation study will test an investigational medicine that blocks a hormone receptor in the brain that is linked to the control of socialization, stress, anxiety, and aggression.

We'll be asking if the investigational study drug can improve social behavior and communication in children and adolescents who:

  • Have ASD
  • Are 5-17 years old
  • Are 'high-functioning' (for this study, that means an IQ of at least 70)
