  • a A cell culture supernatant containing 300,000 copies of RCAS RNA was added to each patient plasma sample. Nine percent of the total sample was assayed following centrifugation.

  • b Values in parentheses are the number of samples analyzed.

  • c Two values for the internal standard were measured for each sample analyzed. The percent recovery is shown in parentheses.
