Table 2 The frequency of autistic patients with increased serum levels of ENA-78 in relation to elevated levels of serum antineuronal auto-antibodies

From: The possible link between elevated serum levels of epithelial cell-derived neutrophil- activating peptide-78 (ENA-78/CXCL5) and autoimmunity in autistic children

  Autistic children with elevated serum ENA-78 Autistic children with normal serum ENA-78 X 2 (p)
  (n = 40) (n = 22)  
Positive antineuronal antibodies (n = 43) 36 (90%) 7 (31.8%) 22.6
Negative antineuronal antibodies (n = 19) 4 (10%) 15 (68.2%) (<0.001)
