There are indications that it may not be the core measurements of autistic

fulfilled an experimental control meeting. Gluten

gliadin and cerebellar peptides .In children with autism this epitope is
responsible for cross-reactive antibody production but it should be confirmed by HLA typing and
MRI of the brain.
