L1 protein is a neutrophil cytoplasmic protein and its measurement in body fluids probably reflects neutrophil turnover. The serum range in normal subjects is wide (60-5700 microgram/l) with a median value of 547 microgram/l but lower (2P less than 0.01) than in patients with chronic obstructive bronchitis (median, 750; range, 99-500 microgram/l). Patients with "emphysema" do not have increased serum L1 protein concentrations. On the other hand patients with a variety of active lung diseases… CONTINUE READING
