Description

Description

This is a continuation of a previous study with the same title, testing the nature and extent of CD8+ cytotoxic T cell immune function in autism in order to test the hypothesis that there is a fundamental defect at the CD8+CTL level in children with autism, ultimately leading to abnormalities in antiviral and/or inflammatory immune function. The study compares children with autism (with and without gastrointestinal symptoms) and typically developing controls.
