Table 2 Correlation between Hif1-α mRNA expression and clinical parameters

From: Increased hypoxia-inducible factor 1α expression in lung cells of horses with recurrent airway obstruction

  Status Hif1-α mRNA/Neutrophils (%) Hif1-α mRNA/PaO2 (mmHg) Hif1-α mRNA/X5HZ (kPa/L-1/s)
Challenged Healthy(n = 4) r = −0.519 r = 0.231 r = −0.634
  RAO-affected(n = 5) r = 0.863 (*) r = −0.881 (*) r = −0.844 (*)
  1. Coefficient of correlations (r) between Hif1-α mRNA levels in bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) cells and neutrophil percentages in BALF, reactance at 5 Hz (X5HZ), and arterial pressure of oxygen PaO2. These values were measured separately in challenged healthy and recurrent airway obstruction-affected horses. (*P < 0.05)
