Plasma levels of amino acids were measured by ion-exchange, high-pressure liquid chromatography in 30 ambulatory patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD; mean +/- SD: age 64 +/- 13 y and forced expiratory volume in 1 s [FEV1] 0.85 +/- 0.25 L) and 30 age- and sex-matched healthy control subjects with regard to nutritional status, resting energy expenditure (REE), and pulmonary function. The ratio of branched-chain amino acids to aromatic amino acids was significantly (P < 0.001… CONTINUE READING
