Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and Osteoporosis

2014-08-27 03:15:56 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The main objective is to study important factors in the patho-physiology of osteoporosis in patients with COPD. Therefore, the investigators will study biological markers in plasma and urine and correlate them to markers of bone turnover and clinical data.

Description

Rationale:

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is defined as a preventable and treatable disease with significant extrapulmonary effects. Osteoporosis is recognized as one of these extrapulmonary consequences. It results in increased risk of fracture and thereby an increased morbidity and mortality. Nowadays it is believed that the patho-physiology of osteoporosis is multi-factorial. However, which factors are most important in patients with COPD is still not clear.

Objective:

The main objective is to study important factors in the patho-physiology of osteoporosis in patients with COPD. Therefore, we will study biological markers in plasma and urine and correlate them to markers of bone turnover and clinical data.

Study design:

The present study will be an observational, cross-sectional study.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A disease of chronic diffuse irreversible airflow obstruction. Subcategories of COPD include CHRONIC BRONCHITIS and PULMONARY EMPHYSEMA.

Hypertrophy and dilation of the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart that is caused by PULMONARY HYPERTENSION. This condition is often associated with pulmonary parenchymal or vascular diseases, such as CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE and PULMONARY EMBOLISM.

A subcategory of CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE. The disease is characterized by hypersecretion of mucus accompanied by a chronic (more than 3 months in 2 consecutive years) productive cough. Infectious agents are a major cause of chronic bronchitis.
