Blood eosinophils could be useful as a biomarker in COPD exacerbations.
Introduction: The aim of analysing the usefulness of the blood eosinophil count (BEC) as a prognostic marker in exacerbations of patients with COPD, evaluating its relationship with hospital mortality, the length of stay, and the early and late re-admissions.
Umeclidinium in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: latest evidence and place in therapy.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a leading cause of morbidity, mortality and health care expenditure throughout the world. COPD guidelines recommend the use of long-acting muscarinic antagonist ...
The asthma-chronic obstructive pulmonary disease overlap syndrome (ACOS): opportunities and challenges.
Purpose of review: Some individuals share characteristics of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The asthma-COPD overlap syndrome (ACOS) has been defined as symptoms of increased variability of airflow in association with an incompletely reversible airflow obstruction.
Genetic landscape of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease identifies heterogeneous cell-type and phenotype associations.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the leading cause of respiratory mortality worldwide. Genetic risk loci provide new insights into disease pathogenesis. We performed a genome-wide association study...
