No correlation between BMI and arachidonic acid induced-CXCL8 and IL-6 release. Body mass index (BMI) was correlated with CXCL8 (a) and IL-6 (b) release upon challenge with arachidonic acid (AA) (100 μM), in fibroblasts from both COPD (n = 18) and non-COPD patients (n = 32). The correlation coefficient (r) was determined using linear regression (Pearson analysis). There were no correlations between BMI and CXCL8 or IL-6 release
