12). 14).

Thorax 1998;53:83–6 Finally, given that induction with normal, as opposed to hypertonic, saline may be more suitable for some patients, it is important to understand whether this may influence the levels of mediators. 8 Repeatability of eosinophil cationic protein (ECP), albumin, and matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) measurements. This was assessed in 16 subjects who underwent sputum induction twice at weekly intervals with isotonic or hypertonic saline. A Bland-Altman graph is shown where, if the variable is reproducible, it is expected that 95% of the differences between measures are less than 2 standard deviations (SD).
