dc.description.abstract The purpose of this review is to assess the evidence for whether IL-6 elevation is present in autism, particularly within the CNS, and to evaluate the neuroanatomical and behavioral implications of elevated IL-6, and more broadly, neuroinflammation. Maternal immune activation is explored as a plausible pathogenetic mechanism for IL-6 elevation as well as the presence of autistic behaviors. The effects of IL-6 on gene expression are investigated in relation to the JAK-STAT pathway. en_US
