Sutterella sp. Distinguish Children with Autism and GI Disorders from Those with GI Disorders but No Autism

52% of children with autism and GI problems, but none in children with only GI problems. Many children with autism had antibodies to Sutterella. "We are not concluding that Sutterella causes autism or gastrointestinal disease in children with autism," says Lipkin. "Nonetheless, our fındings suggest that microbiome studies may provide insights into why some children respond to antibiotics, probiotics, or diets that alter microflora." The researchers note that GI microbiota "plays an essential role in physiological homeostasis in the intestine and periphery. . . perhaps even influencing brain development and behavior."
