Immune Abnormalities in Patients with Autism.
Warren, Reed P.; And Others
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v16 n2 p189-97 Jun 1986
A study of 31 autistic patients (3-28 years old) has revealed several immune-system abnormalities, including decreased numbers of T lymphocytes and an altered ratio of helper-to-suppressor T cells. Immune-system abnormalities may be directly related to underlying biologic processes of autism or an indirect reflection of the actual pathologic mechanism. (Author/CL)
