Table 3 Coefficients of variation (%) for RTL between and within lungs

From: The aging lung: tissue telomere shortening in health and disease

  NORMAL CF COPD cHP BOS RAS Mean
CV between lungs for each group, % 18.3 12.5 17.6 30 22.4 18.0 19.8
Mean CV within lung, % 16.3 11.2 17.3 15.2 11.9 12.4 14.1
  1. Results are presented as percentages. Coefficients of variation were calculated per disease group (based on mean lung RTL values) and per lung (based on core RTL values)
  2. RTL relative telomere length, CV coefficient of variation, CF cystic fibrosis, COPD chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cHP chronic hypersensitivity pneumonitis, BOS bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome, RAS restrictive allograft syndrome
