Levels of Inflammatory Markers in sequential bronchoalveolar lavages performed in lung transplant recipients. Two sequential bronchoalveolar lavages (BALs) were performed in 15 consecutive lung transplant recipients and levels of CXCL10, IL-10, CCL2, CCL5, VEGF-C, RAGE, CXCL9, CXCL1, IL-17A, IL-21, PDGF and GCSF were measured using a custom multiplex bead kit. While none of the comparisons were significant, there was a trend towards lower inflammatory markers in nearly all BAL2 samples compared to BAL1. A non-parametric Wilcoxon matched-pairs signed rank test was used for comparison
