Three conchiolin deposit groups (CDGs) were defined as follows: CDGI (corresponding to beginning of infection stages CDSI and CDS2), CDGII (intermediate infection stage: CDS3), and CDGII1 (well-developed infection stages: CDS4 to CDS7).
In some patients only slightly abnormal values are found for apoC-III isoforms (as in case CDGII x * 1 in Table 1).
CDGII includes all defects that are localized in the processing of glycans on the protein.
