Additional file 1. Cytokines profile in response to PHA and to DBL-5 stimulation of PBMC at inclusion and at delivery. The frequencies of IFN-γ-secreting T cells and cytokine production in PBMC at delivery in response to PHA or to the recombinant protein DBL-5 are shown. Except for IFN-γ and IL-13 production in response to DBL-5, all box plots illustrate medians with 25th and 75th percentiles and whiskers for 10th and 90th percentiles. The box plots for IFN-γ and IL-13 production in response to DBL-5 indicate the mean with SEM (standard error of the mean). The univariate statistical significance of differences between groups was determined using the nonparametric Mann–Whitney U test, p < 0.05.
