Table 3 Summary of protein spot analyses between s-Cath and mini-BAL in each subject

From: Proteomic Analysis of Two Non-Bronchoscopic Methods of Sampling the Lungs of Patients with the Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS)

Sample no. Number of spots Similar (%) Increased in s-Cath (%) Decreased in s-Cath (%)
1 1,992 79.2 4.4 16.4
2 2,417 51.1 24.5 24.4
3 2,637 67.5 19.4 13.1
4 1,951 67.5 6.9 25.6
5 2,148 73.0 12.3 14.7
6 1,810 66.4 15.5 18.1
7 2,190 74.1 9.5 16.4
Mean (±SD) 2,164 ± 285 68.4 ± 8.9 13.2 ± 7.1 18.4 ± 4.8
  1. A difference in spot abundance was defined as a twofold change in log volume ratio. The Student’s t test was used for comparison with a p < 0.05 for statistical significance.
