                Melatonin "does appear to be effective," Beth Malow, MD, professor of neurology at
                Vanderbilt University, in Nashville, Tennessee, said during her presentation.


                "Kids with autism who have some sleep problems are candidates for melatonin,
                and I believe that large, randomized clinical trials of melatonin are well warranted,"
                she concluded.
