Flawed research into causes of Autism

Here's a post about the supposed connection between a preservative in vaccines and autism spectrum disorders. It turns out that the 1998 study that had parents agonizing over whether childhood vaccinations gave their children autism was wrong. I wonder how much progress could have been made into understanding the causes of and best treatment for austism spectrum disorders if the scientific world hadn't been side tracked by this flawed research?
