  1. Results represent optical density values at 405 nm, measured from serum samples obtained after sacrification of the animals. Ova-sp = ovalbumin-specific; EC = epicutaneous sensitization; ova = ovalbumin-sensitized mice, (n = 8); saline = sham-sensitized mice, (n = 5); * = P < 0.05, ** = P < 0.01 (Mann-Whitney's U-test); SD = standard deviation. All samples were assayed in duplicates.
