Previous research identified an increase in serum vitamin A and E levels post lung transplantation in patients with cystic fibrosis.  This study examined the pre- and post-lung transplant serum vitamin A and E levels in patients with end stage lung disease of all causes, concluding that the increased levels previously noted in cystic fibrosis patients are significantly elevated in non-cystic fibrosis patients as well.
