Review of trials of gluten/casein elimination diets in children with autism. Christison and Ivany, J Dev Behav Pediatr, 27(2 Suppl):S162-71, 2006.

Details

This study reviewed seven trials of gluten/casein (cereal and milk protein) elimination diets in children with autism spectrum disorders. All trials reported some success in reducing symptoms of autism. However, the authors consider that design flaws in the studies weaken confidence in the findings and they make recommendations for future trials.
