  • a For patients CF 1 to CF 7 the 8-oxodG levels were measured by the use of single isolates. These isolates were collected from the population analysis of the sputum samples (cross-sectional study). For patients CF 8 and CF 9 the levels are means of the levels for several isolates from the longitudinal study.

  • b ND, not determined.

  • c Mean for five isolates.

  • d Mean for four isolates.

  • e Mean for two isolates.
