Figure S1. Receiver Operating Characteristic Curve for EPX measurements to identify an ‘eosinophilic airway phenotype’ defined by ≥3% eosinophils in sputum.
Figure S2. EPX-levels in either the serum or plasma of control vs asthma patients failed to display significant differences despite observed differences in both sputum eosinophilia (% of total sputum leukocytes) and sputum EPX levels.
Figure S3. Sputum EPX levels increased as a function of the observed sputum (i.e., airway) eosinophilia.
