DMBT1 concentration in breast milk and neonatal infections. The DMBT1 concentration (mean ± SEM) in the breast milk from mothers of infants with neonatal infections versus infants without neonatal infection are demonstrated in A. The breast milk from mothers of neonates with infections showed significantly higher DMBT1 concentrations compared to the breast milk from mothers of neonates without infections (* P <0.05). B illustrates the calculated probability for an infection using the DMBT1 concentration-based mathematical equation for infants with versus without confirmed neonatal infection.
