Figure 6: Mean SEM and individual titers of total IgE (a) and specific milk-IgE (b, c) are shown. The investigated subjects were divided in three groups (a, b) 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). The investigated subjects were divided in four groups (c) 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). Specific milk-IgE titers in ASDs children on a regular diet resulted higher than ASDs on GF/CF ( , Kruskal Wallis test, Dunn's multiple comparison test).
