CCSP & SP-D levels in sequential bronchoalveolar lavages performed in lung transplant recipients. Two sequential bronchoalveolar lavages (BALs) were performed in 20 consecutive lung transplant recipients and levels of CCSP and SP-D were measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. BAL2 was found to contain a lower concentration of CCSP (P < 0.001) (a) and a higher concentration of SP-D (P < 0.05) (b) compared to BAL1. A non-parametric Wilcoxon matched-pairs signed rank test was used for comparison
