Figure 2: Mean SEM and individual titers of AGA-IgA (anti-α-gliadin IgA) are reported; normal range cutoff is indicated by the dotted line (15 U/mL). (a) The investigated subjects were divided in three groups to be compared on the basis of diet regimen: ASDs children on a regular diet (AU RD) or on GF/CF diet (AU GF/CF) and healthy children (HC RD); no significant differences were shown. (b) The investigated subjects were divided in four groups to be compared on the basis of normal/altered intestinal permeability: ASDs children with normal (AU normal) or altered (AU altered) LA/MA values and healthy children with normal (HC normal) or altered LA/MA values (HC altered); no significant differences were shown.
