Sum of correlations presented between emphysema severity, proteolytic activity and oxidative stress variables
Body weight loss Gastrocnemius weight TBARS Carbonyl proteins Lipid peroxidation by CL Proteolytic activity
Crossed Alveolar Intercept 0.87 0.72 −0.98* −0.99* −0.95* −0.90*
Chymotrypsin-like activity −0.99* −0.97* 0.96* 0.91* −0.97* -

Mean, SE and N from each group were combined and used in order to establish the correlations between the variables. TBARS – Thiobarbituric acid reactive substances. Positive values mean positive correlation; negative values mean negative correlation, as evaluated by Pearson’s correlation test. * p<0.05.
