Table 1 Serum levels of anti-MBP auto-antibodies in autistic patients and their relation to the degree of the severity of autism and hyperserotonemia.

From: A lack of association between hyperserotonemia and the increased frequency of serum anti-myelin basic protein auto-antibodies in autistic children

  Serum anti-MBP (pg/ml)

Healthy children (n = 30) 92 (49) 6.85
Autistic children (n = 50) 465.5 (348) (< 0.001)
Patients with mild to moderate autism (n = 17) 334 (320) 1.45
Patients with severe autism (n = 33) 504 (328) (0.15)
Patients with normal serum serotonin (n = 4) 382 (453.5) 0.36
