Markers of Celiac Disease and Gluten Sensitivity in Children with Autism
Nga M. Lau, et al.

PLoS ONE 8(6): e66155.

Conclusions: A subset of children with autism displays increased immune reactivity to gluten, the mechanism of which appears to be distinct from that in celiac disease. The increased anti-gliadin antibody response and its association with GI symptoms points to a potential mechanism involving immunologic and/or intestinal permeability abnormalities in affected children.
