mRNA levels of Saa3 in lung, Saa1 liver, and SAA3 plasma protein on day 1 (scatter plots, mean + SEM). Saa3 mRNA in lung tissue and Saa1 mRNA in liver tissue were used as biomarkers of pulmonary and hepatic acute phase response, following exposure to particles collected at the apron of a commercial airport and in a jet shelter at a non-commercial airfield. SAA3 protein was measured in plasma. Saa in lung and liver was measured on day 1, 28 and 90 post-exposure, and SAA3 on day 1 and on day 28 for highest particle doses
