The dilutional effect of salivary contamination may be minimized by asking subjects undergoing sputum induction to spit out saliva into a separate container before coughing sputum into another.

It can be seen that the measurement of EPO and MPO was markedly reduced in sputum after dithiothreitol (DTT) was added to the ultrasonically homogenized (U) sample. In addition, homogenizing the sample at 37ºC did not affect the levels compared with samples homogenized at room temperature.
