Table 2 Superoxide anion production in leukocytes isolated from RGBS patients with incomplete and complete recovery at follow- up

From: Leukocyte oxygen radical production determines disease severity in the recurrent Guillain-Barré syndrome

  O 2 - production (Mcpm)
stimuli - recovery + recovery p value
fMLF 47 ± 23 170 ± 25 0.004
WKYMVM 54 ± 20 166 ± 21 0.003
PMA 488 ± 35 576 ± 38 0.08
  1. Leukocytes isolated from RGBS subjects were triggered with fMLF (10-7 M), WKYMVM (10-7 M) or PMA (5 × 10-8 M). The release of superoxide anions was measured by isoluminol/luminol-enhanced CL. Data are presented as marginal mean peak values ± SEM comparing O2- production between patients with incomplete (-) and complete (+) recovery using a one-sided test in a linear model.
