From: Nutritional and metabolic status of children with autism vs. neurotypical children, and the association with autism severity

Plasma Free Sulfate -0.19 (n.s.) -0.25 (n.s.) -0.38 (0.006)
RBC Iron 0.36 (0.009) 0.27 (0.05) 0.12 (n.s.)
Serum Phosphorus 0.38 (0.006) 0.11(n.s.) 0.12 (n.s.)
Plasma Phenylalanine -0.22 (n.s.) -0.29 (0.03) -0.43 (0.002)
  1. Only biomarkers with values of R = 0.34 or greater are listed, corresponding to a p-value of 0.01 or lower. Note that since many correlations were investigated, these results are not highly significant, and are at most possibly significant.
