COVID-19 is the infection caused by the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). Recent studies have reported patients with COVID-19 who develop severe infections typically have significant inflammation and cytokine storms. They also show evidence of mitochondrial dysfunction, oxidative stress, abnormal cytokine levels, and diminished glutathione levels. All of these problems have previously been reported in individuals with autism. Dr. Rossignol will review the links between the problems found in COVID-19 and autism. A number of nutritional supplements and medications might be helpful in preventing COVID-19 or limiting the severity of illness and Dr. Rossignol will discuss these as well.
Dr. Dan Rossignol received his Doctorate of Medicine at the Medical College of Virginia and completed his residency in family medicine at the University of Virginia. Coming from an academic background, Dr. Rossignol searched the medical literature looking for a solution after both of his children were diagnosed with autism. He has made it his mission to research and publish in autism. Since 2006, he has 53 papers, abstracts, editorials, and book chapters concerning autism and related conditions. Dr. Rossignol is a Fellow of the American Academy of Family Physicians (FAAFP) and a Fellow of the Medical Academy of Pediatric Special Needs (FMAPS).
