Decreased Plasma COMP and Increased Plasma CTX-II Levels in a Chinese Pseudoachondroplasia Family with Novel COMP Mutation

Figure 3

Plasma levels of COMP and CTX-II in the affected individuals and age-matched subjects. (a) Plasma COMP levels in PSACH were significantly lower than the age-matched controls, and plasma COMP levels in normal adult controls were significantly higher than the normal children less than three years old. (b) Plasma CTX-II levels in PSACH were significantly increased compared with the age-matched controls; .
