FABP5 expression is decreased in PBMCs of COPD patients and further decreased in COPD exacerbations. a Real-time PCR for human FABP5 was performed on 20 non-COPD donors and 34 COPD donors (GOLD 1–4). Association of FABP5 mRNA levels in 34 COPD donors who reported. b Flare-up and c pneumonia. d FABP5 protein expression as a function of exacerbation numbers among COPD patients. Data in ac represent the individual patient’s distribution along with the mean ± SEM. Data in d represent the mean ± SEM of FABP5 protein concentration in function of the self-reported number of exacerbations in the past 12 months
