Objective: The purpose of this study was to assess Vanadium concentrations in hair from autistic subjects as previous reports have shown a relationship between the disorder and patterns of several other trace elements. Method: Neutron activation analysis was performed in a group of 10 adult autistic subjects compared with 10 healthy age and sex matched controls. Results: No significant difference was found in Vanadium hair concentration between groups. Conclusions: Vanadium does not appear to have a potential as a secondary marker in autism.
