Abstract

IgA antibody levels in serum were examined in two groups of schizophrenic patients. All were diagnosed according to DSM-III-R criteria. One group of 36 males and 12 females were compared to historical controls. The other group consisted of 13 males off drugs for at least 3 months; these were compared with age- and sex-matched controls. An increase in specific IgA antibodies was found. More schizophrenics than controls showed IgA antibody levels above the upper normal limit to gliadin, beta-lactoglobulin, and casein.
