|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*|
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.
