Now, over the years, there have been many abnormalities reported in the
literature connecting the immune system to autism. There are changes in T cells, CD4 high,
CD4 low, CD8 cells. The trouble is, most of these are very non-specific. Ill talk to
you later on about how you can use what is non-specific to help define your children. The
trouble in the literature is everyone says well, one report says its too high,
one report says its too low and so they keep fighting about it. Except they do
acknowledge something is going on.
The key, for your children, are two things. The NK cells being low
no immunologist can state this is normal. The other thing that has become a very
strong marker on some of your children is the idea that B cells are elevated. B cells are
the cells that create antibodies and are presumed to be a major component of our
lymphocytes in fighting viruses.
