Table 4 Relationship between the level of alveolar NT-PCP-III, CT scan fibrosis score and the histological lung fibroproliferation on open lung biopsies

From: Chest CT scan and alveolar procollagen III to predict lung fibroproliferation in acute respiratory distress syndrome

  No histological fibroproliferation (n = 7) Histological fibroproliferation (n = 3) p value
NT-PCP-III (µG/L) 1 [1–1] 13 [10–99] 0.01
Corrected fibrosis score 2.5 [1.0–3.0] 3.0 [2.8–5.0] 0.14
 Ground glass score 1.5 [0.3–2.0] 2.0 [1.8–4.0] 0.14
 Honeycombing score 1.0 [1.0–1.0] 1.0 [1.0–1.0] 0.52
  1. Ten patients have an open lung biopsy within 7 days around the BAL and the chest CT scan. Values are expressed as median [IQR]
  2. NT-PCP-III N-terminal peptide for type III procollagen, BAL bronchoalveolar lavage
