There is probably no harm in trying, but case reports should always be taken with a grain of salt, since they are just anecdotes. One problem is that there is no consensus that "inciting antigens" in the diet have anything to do with AS. Many people have flares and spontaneous remissions anyway without dietary changes, and for every story like this case report you will find many people who tried to get better with dietary changes but failed. Better studies should be done on this, but they won't unless funded by governments, and good luck with that in this increasingly cutthroat capitalist society. By the way, the standard of care pharmaceutical interventions for AS, such as TNF blockers, have little or no toxicity.
