  1. Number of cat blood samples producing detectable concentrations of interleukin-10 (IL-10), interleukin-4 (IL-4), and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) following ex-vivo whole blood stimulation assay with 50 μg/mL or 500 μg/mL of pre-study basal diet and the respective hydrolyzed diet, before and after a 6-week feeding trial of one of 3 hydrolyzed diets (n = 3 cats per group). No samples produced detectable cytokines following stimulation with the negative saline control
