ABSTRACT: The incidence of otitis media in the pediatric population has risen steadily over the last 10 years. Various strategies have been employed including the development of new antimicrobial therapies to combat this problem. Autism as well has been steadily on the rise with a 3000-fold increase in occurrence with pockets of autism located in various places around the U.S. Couple this increase in autism with the increase in other conditions on the PDD (pervasive developmental disorder) spectrum, and we are dealing with an epidemic.
