Decreased Levels of EGF in Plasma of Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder

Figure 1

Plasma levels of EGF and HGF. Levels of EGF and HGF in peripheral blood plasma from ASD participants and similarly aged typically developing controls as measured by ELISA (data is shown as mean and SEM). EGF levels are significantly lower in ASD subjects in comparison to typically developing controls ( ). HGF levels did not differ significantly between the two groups. Significance was determined by two-tailed unpaired Student’s t-test.
