|Correlation between Hif1-α mRNA expression and clinical parameters|
|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 (*)|
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)
