Definition Private repository of clinical and genetic Private repository of clinical and genetic information on families with autism. Genetic and clinical data are obtained from families that have more than one family member diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder. The biological samples, along with the accompanying clinical data, are made available to AGRE-approved researchers worldwide. As they become available, additional family pedigrees will be posted in the online catalog which, based on the expanding nature of the resource, provides the most up-to-date availability of pedigrees and biomaterials. Cell lines have been established for the majority of families in this collection and serum/plasma is available on a subset of the subjects until stocks are depleted. The diagnosis of autism has been made using the standard Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised (ADI-R) algorithm and the Autism Diagnostic Observation Scale (ADOS-G). Detailed birth and medical histories (including basic dysmorphology assessments) on children as well as family and medical information for parents and unaffected siblings, are available for nearly all families. These data continue to be collected for the remainder of the catalog families. To obtain access to the AGRE collection, researchers must receive approval from the AGRE Steering Committee by completing the Researcher Access application and the signing of the Researcher Distribution Agreement found on the AGRE website. DNA, cell lines, serum, plasma and clinical information are made available to AGRE-approved researchers for analysis. to AGRE-approved researchers for analysis.
