Autism is a neurodevelopment disorder and autoimmune disease that is linked with gastrointestinal disease, mental retardation, impairment of behavioral and social communication. Oxidative stress has a key role in autism. Oxidative stress occurs when reactive oxygen species amounts exceed the antioxidant activity of cells. It acts as a mediator in brain injury, neurodegenerative diseases and lead to autism. Camel milk has potential therapeutic effects in autism. The consumption of camel milk in children suffering from autism cause to reduce of autism symptoms and improve motor skills, language and cognition. Camel milk contains high minerals like iron, copper, zinc, magnesium, and high vitamin C which considered as strong antioxidant against free radicals. Also due to the smaller size of immunoglobulin of camel milk, it can recover immune system of autistic cases. Therefore, findings suggest that camel milk play an important role in decreasing oxidative stress by alteration and increasing of antioxidant enzymes; like glutathione peroxidase, superoxide dismutase, myeloperoxidase and nonenzymatic antioxidants, improve autistic behaviors.
