Author royalties from autism book donated to autism research
Date:11/3/2008

Paul Offit, M.D., announced today that all author royalties earned from the sale of his new book, "Autism's False Prophets: Bad Science, Risky Medicine, and the Search for a Cure," will be donated to the Center for Autism Research at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

"We are very pleased to partner with Dr. Offit, and to accept the royalties of his book for the work done here at the Center for Autism Research (CAR) at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia," said Dr. Bob Schultz, director of the Center for Autism Research at Children's Hospital. "CAR is dedicated to helping children with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and their families. CAR's mission is to identify the causes of ASD, and from that knowledge devise effective treatments. By donating profits from his book, Dr. Offit is helping to push science forward for the good of all."

Dr. Offit, who is chief of Infectious Disease and director of the Vaccine Education Center at Children's Hospital, recounts the history of autism research and argues that antivaccination forces have misled the public by claiming a false link between vaccines and autism, a challenging neurological condition whose true cause remains unknown.

Dr. Offit's book underscores the importance of dedicating scarce social resources toward supporting legitimate scientific research into autism, rather than being needlessly diverted into implausible and scientifically unsupported treatments.
