Fig. 2

Colostrum Ig levels associated with IE in respiratory tract and skin. Graphics show colostrum Ig amounts from H (zero) or IE groups (1, 2, 3 or 4 number of infectious episodes, respectively), associated with (a) respiratory tract (n zero = 423, n1 = 142, n2 = 41, n3 = 23 and n4 = 10) and (b) skin (n zero = 423, n1 = 25, n2 = 13 and n3 = 11). All values are represented as mean ± standard deviation (SD). All data are expressed in milligrams of Ig per milliliter of colostrum (mg / mL). Statistical analysis was performed using Pearson correlation test. *p < 0.05. ***p < 0.001
