Concentration of CD40, RANTES, MCP-1 and EGF between the 1–3 and 4–6 months of lactation in the three separated layers of breast milk: water phase [W], water fraction of lipid phase [L-WF] and lipid fraction of lipid phase [L-LF]. 1A: CD40; 1B: EGF; 1C: MCP-1; 1D: RANTES. a CD40 ***P < 0.0001 vs W, b EGF ***P < 0.0001 vs W, ##P < 0.01 vs L-WF, #P < 0.05 vs L-WF, c MCP-1 ***P < 0.0001 vs W, d RANTES ***P < 0.0001 vs W, #P < 0.05 vs L-WF. Note. CD40 = cluster of differentiation 40; MCP-1 = macrophage chemokine protein-1; RANTES = regulated on activation, normal T cell expressed and secreted; EGF = epidermal growth factor
