Doctors at Israel’s Sheba Medical Center, Tel HaShomer are bringing new hope to children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Dr. Lidia Gabis, a pediatric neurologist and researcher at Sheba Medical Center, discovered that a combination of the drug donepezil (commonly used to treat Alzheimer’s disease and known under the brand name Aricept) and choline (a food additive that Gabis hypothesized could enhance the drug) improved receptive language skills in children ages 5 through 10 while resulting in minor improvement in adolescents.
