Table 2 Variables predictive of maternal cytokine concentrations

From: Effect of prenatal EPA and DHA on maternal and umbilical cord blood cytokines

Variable Cytokine Slope Standard error +/− Significance
EPA-rich fish oil group IL6 −76.3 32.2 0.02
EPA-rich fish oil group IL15 −23.8 10.9 0.03
EPA-rich fish oil group TNFα − 141.1 62.6 0.03
DHA fraction IL1α 4.64 2.33 0.05
DHA fraction IL10 4.82 2.36 0.04
EPA fraction IL10 −18.8 8.42 0.03
BMI at entry TNFβ −0.64 0.32 0.05
  1. All analyses were adjusted for the following variables: Baseline concentrations of each cytokine, maternal BMI, maternal serum EPA fraction adjusted for baseline and DHA fraction adjusted for study baseline
