Figure 5

Mean SEM and individual titers of specific IgG are reported; normal range cutoff is indicated by the dotted line (12 mgA/L). 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). (a) Gliadin IgG were higher in ASDs on regular diet in respect to ASDs on GF/CF ( Kruskal Wallis test, Dunn's multiple comparison test). (b) Casein-IgG were lower in ASDs on GF/CF versus ASDs on regular diet and healthy children ( , Kruskal Wallis test, Dunn's multiple comparison test).
