Table 6 Delayed-type hypersensitivity (DTH) skin response before and after two-months of cereal ingestion (mean ±SD)*

From: Ingestion of micronutrient fortified breakfast cereal has no influence on immune function in healthy children: A randomized controlled trial

Variable Pre-study Post-study Treatment interaction p-value
DTH skin response (mm)    0.812
   Low 23.5 ± 10.1 12.8 ± 7.5  
   Medium 22.5 ± 11.3 16.4 ± 12.4  
   High 24.3 ± 13.7 12.6 ± 6.3  
  1. * DTH skin response represents the sum of three skin tests: tetanus, mumps, and candin. Low (N = 21), medium (N = 21), high (N = 19) = level of nutrient fortification of the cereal product.
