Table 2 Proteins, phospholipids and SP-A concentrations in WLL outflow fluid.

From: Successful whole lung lavage in pulmonary alveolar proteinosis secondary to lysinuric protein intolerance: a case report

  Total proteins (μg/mL) Phospholipids (μg/mL) SP-A (μg/mL)
Right lung 8,500 150 202
Left lung 6,500 80 41
Controls (mean ± SD) 171 ± 74 46 ± 27 1 ± 1
  1. Concentrations of total proteins, phospholipids and SP-A were measured in the outflow fluid after lavage of both lungs and were found to be markedly increased with respect to control levels.
