Autism Spectrum Disorder – Current Treatment – Detailed, Expanded Analysis – Treatment Algorithms – Claims Data Analysis (US)

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder involving significant social, communication, and behavioral challenges. Behavioral and developmental therapies are the cornerstones of treatment. There is no cure for ASD, and pharmacological intervention is mainly focused on symptomatic treatment of the disease. Risperidone and aripiprazole are the only two FDA-approved treatments to manage the irritability associated with ASD; other drugs are used off-label to manage co-occurring psychological conditions. Our Treatment Algorithms study provides national patient-level claims data to explore the use of key therapies in both newly diagnosed and recently treated patients, providing insight into the current treatment landscape for ASD.
