Now Enrolling: Tapestry Study

The tapestry Study

We are currently enrolling adolescents ages 13 to 17 to participate in a clinical study that is investigating a medication designed to remove bacterial chemicals produced in the gut that may reach the brain resulting in characteristics associated with ASD.

The purpose of the Tapestry Study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of an investigational medication to potentially improve symptoms associated with ASD such as irritability and anxiety and evaluate changes in sleep, and quality of life.
