LPV concentration (nanograms per milliliter) in MP, BM, and IP over 6 months postpartum

Values are presented as the median (IQR) of individual ratios, n (the number of samples available for analysis, of a possible 32 samples; missing samples due to shipping error), unless otherwise noted.

  • a MP LPV was below the LOQ in one sample in months 1 and 6.

  • b BM LPV was below the LOQ in one sample in months 1 and 3, and in two samples in month 6.

  • c IP LPV was below the LOQ in three, eight, and seven samples in months 1, 3, and 6, respectively.

  • d LPV concentration fell below the LOQ for all IP samples; therefore, the IP/MP ratio was not calculated.
