Abstract

The level of a neural cell adhesion molecule (NCAM) serum fragment in autism was determined by using an antiserum prepared with immunoaffinity purified mouse NCAM. Autistic patients (N = 16) had statistically significantly decreased serum NCAM levels compared with age-matched controls (p less than 0.0005). This observation could not be attributed to a medication-induced effect. Depressed serum NCAM levels in autism are distinct from schizophrenia, in which serum NCAM levels are elevated.
