  1. Data are expressed as mean ± SD. Definition of abbreviations: BMI, body mass index; FEV1% pred, forced expiratory volume in the 1st sec (% predicted); FVC% pred, forced vital capacity (% predicted). Data were analyzed by one-way ANOVA and Tukey’s post hoc test. * P < 0.0001. ** P < 0.01. *** P < 0.05. * vs Control; /* COPD-BS vs COPD-TS
  2. Abbreviations: BMI body mass index, COPD-BS COPD by biomass smoke exposure, COPD-TS COPD secondary to tobacco smoking, FEV1% pred forced expiratory volume in the 1st sec (% predicted), FVC% pred forced vital capacity (% predicted)
