COPD and obesity often coexist and there is a complex interaction between them. Our aim was to evaluate the prevalence of obesity in a secondary care COPD population. Furthermore, the presence of comorbidities in obese (COPD) and non-obese COPD (COPD) individuals was studied. In 1654 COPD patients (aged ≥18 years) who visited a pulmonologist between January 2015 and December 2015, patient characteristics, pulmonary function tests and comorbidities were obtained from the medical records. Subjects were cate...
Depression is a frequent comorbidity in COPD. COPD symptoms such as dyspnea may play an important role in the causal relationship between COPD and depression. We investigated the interrelations among different aspects of dyspnea and other COPD parameters and symptoms of depression in COPD patients.
Little is known about how to achieve enduring improvements in physical activity (PA), sedentary behaviour (SB) and sleep for people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). This study aimed to: (1) identify what people with COPD from South Australia and the Netherlands, and experts from COPD- and non-COPD-specific backgrounds considered important to improve behaviours; and (2) identify areas of dissonance between these different participant groups.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients often have several comorbidities, such as cardiovascular diseases (CVD) or lung cancer (LC), which might influence resource use in the final months of life. However, no previous studies documented resource use in end-of-life COPD patients at a population level, thereby differentiating whether COPD patients die of their COPD, CVD or LC.
Introduction: Data on the prevalence of psychopathological disorders in the exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are very heterogeneous. COPD and depression have common predisposing factors. The aim: The aim of the research is to conduct a comprehensive assessment of the effect of paroxetine on the level of depressive disorders in the exacerbation of severe degree COPD in women.
Over the past few years there has been a renewed interest in patients with characteristics of both asthma and COPD. Although the precise definition of asthma-COPD overlap (ACO) is still controversial, patients with overlapping features are frequently encountered in clinical practice, and may indeed have worse clinical outcomes and increased healthcare utilization than those with asthma or COPD. Therefore, there is a critical need to set a framework for the therapeutic approach of such patients. There are ke...
Despite considerable progress concerning pharmaceutical therapeutic options, many COPD patients show a markedly reduced quality of life and increased mortality risk. This workshop aimed to identify COPD-specific factors impeding an improved mode of care for patients with COPD. Such factors are: the generally lower social and educational status of the majority of COPD patients; the stigma of COPD as a self-inflicted disease ("smoker's lung"); the strict sectoral separation within the German health care syste...
Proteinases with a disintegrin and a metalloproteinase domain (ADAMs) have not been well studied in COPD. We investigated whether ADAM9 is linked to COPD in humans and mice.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the most common fixed airflow limitation. Individuals may present with the features of both asthma and COPD called asthma-COPD overlap (ACO) with more severity and worse health-related quality of life than COPD or asthma. One of the promising biomarkers that could be used in clinical practice to differentiate ACO from COPD is fractional exhaled nitric oxide (F). The role of Fractional exhaled nitric oxide (F) in COPD/ACO remains unknown. This scoping review ai...
Tiotropium bromide has been widely used in clinical practice, while theophylline is another treatment option for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). However, only a few relevant studies have investigated the long-term outcomes and efficacy of both in patients with COPD. We evaluated the effects of tiotropium and low-dose theophylline on stable COPD patients of groups B and D.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a major global health issue and theophylline is used extensively. Preclinical investigations have demonstrated that low plasma concentrations (1-5 mg/L) of theophylline enhance antiinflammatory effects of corticosteroids in COPD.
What is the topic of this paper? In this study, by using the MVE exposure combining with/without LPS instillation, we established, evaluated and compared solo MVE, LPS with MVE+LPS treatment-induced COPD models in mice. What advances does it highlight? Our study demonstrated a novel paradigm that combining chronic exposure to MVE with early LPS instillation can establish a mouse model with some features of COPD, which allows researchers to further investigate the underlying molecular mechanisms between air ...
Chronic airway inflammation is a characteristic feature of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Previous studies demonstrated that melatonin had a protective effect against COPD. In addition, silent information regulator 1 (SIRT1) was reported to be beneficial in COPD. However, whether SIRT1 is involved in the protective effect of melatonin against COPD remains unclear. In this study, we investigated the effect of melatonin on a rat model of COPD and explored the potential mechanisms. Twenty eight ...
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a heterogeneous smoking-related disease characterized by airway obstruction and inflammation. This inflammation may persist even after smoking cessation and responds variably to corticosteroids. Personalizing treatment to biologically similar "molecular phenotypes" may improve therapeutic efficacy in COPD. IL-17A is involved in neutrophilic inflammation and corticosteroid resistance, and thus may be particularly important in a COPD molecular phenotype.
Colder temperatures have been shown to increase hospitalization and mortality rates in adults with COPD and cardiac disease. Seasonal influences on exacerbation rates in adults with severe COPD but without significant cardiovascular disease are unclear. In addition, regional variations in COPD exacerbations in North America have not yet been explored.
Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a common complication of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and is a significant risk factor for hospitalization and shortened life expectancy. Therefore, developing new serum biomarkers for early diagnosis and prognosis of COPD associated PH is crucial. In the present study, a solid-phase antibody array simultaneously detecting multiple proteins was used to search specific COPD associated PH biomarkers, with COPD patients and healthy subjects as control groups. As a...
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is regarded as one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality across the world, yet its proper diagnosis remains a challenge. Community-based population studies conducted in North and South America, Europe, Australia and Asia have revealed that 10%-12% of adults ≥ age 40 have evidence of persistent airflow limitation on spirometry, but only 20-30% of these subjects have been diagnosed with COPD. These studies collectively suggest that approximately 70% of...
Cigarette smoking is a major environmental risk factor for many diseases, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). There are shared genetic influences on cigarette smoking and COPD. Genetic risk factors for cigarette smoking in cohorts enriched for COPD are largely unknown.
Patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are at a higher risk of many types of cancer. However, specific investigation of the risk of prostate cancer and the influence of COPD pharmacotherapy in patients with COPD is lacking. This study investigated the risk and influence of COPD pharmacotherapy on risk of prostate cancer in patients with COPD.
Many unmet needs still remain in the assessment and treatment of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), particularly in relation to its under- and misdiagnosis, which lead to under- and mistreatment. This paucity of knowledge about the importance and presence of COPD, as well as its treatment, is seen with patients and carers as well as healthcare providers. This review considers the areas of key educational need, including the clinical characteristics of COPD, factors contributing to t...
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is associated with high clinical and economic burden. Optimal pharmacological therapy for COPD aims to reduce symptoms and the frequency and severity of exacerbations. Umeclidinium/vilanterol (UMEC/VI) is an approved combination therapy for once-daily maintenance treatment of patients with COPD. This study evaluated the impact of delaying UMEC/VI initiation on medical costs and exacerbation risk.
Respiratory inhalers, which directly deliver medication to the airway, are important for controlling symptoms and preventing exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The inhaler misuse rate of patients with COPD in Taiwan is unclear. In this study, the inhaler techniques and patient characteristics associated with incorrect inhaler techniques among patients with COPD were evaluated.
Quitting smoking is key for patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Standard recommendations for quitting smoking are implemented for COPD as well. Varenicline Tartrate (VT) is the most effective drug to help quit smoking, but few studies have analyszed its effectiveness.
It is well known that chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients present with muscle dysfunction that may not correlate with the degree of severity of airflow obstruction. Historically, the strength deficit of the knee extensor musculature (quadriceps) has been described as an independent factor of mortality in COPD. We present the results of a retrospective study with longitudinal follow-up of 60 patients with severe COPD followed for 7 years. During follow-up 22 patients died, mainly of respir...
Lung dysbiosis promotes airway inflammation and decreased local immunity, potentially playing a role in the pathogenesis of acute exacerbations of COPD (AECOPD). We determined the relationship between sputum microbiome at the time of AECOPD hospitalization and 1-year mortality in a COPD cohort.
