Relationship between celiac disease and autism  

This study will attempt to determine if there is a relationship between celiac disease and autism in autistic children with GI disease, and if so, will determine if the presence of CD biomarkers correlates with low levels of Alpha-1 Antitrypsin (AAT) and/or anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA). Children with autism will be compared to typical controls. Project Status
