Figure 3

In vitro assessment of allergenic reactivity of blg digesta. Effect of gastric (phase 1) and gastro-duodenal (phase 1+2) digestion on the ability of blg to activate basophils (A) or stimulate proliferation of PBLCs (B) from CMA children. Results are expressed as mean values ± SEM. AI: Activation Index representing the ratio between the percentages (%) of cells expressing CD63 on their surface incubated in the presence of digesta and the percentage (%) of cells expressing CD63 incubated in the absence of digesta. PI: Proliferation Index representing the ratio between the percentage (%) of cells expressing PCNA on their surface cultured in the presence of digesta and the percentage (%) of cells expressing PCNA cultured in the absence of digesta. PC:phosphatidylcholine. * P < 0.05.
