Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Markers and Prognosis

2014-07-24 14:19:01 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The study aim is to verify the association between the changes in markers of disease and patient´s prognosis in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Description

In a previous study, 120 COPD patients were followed-up during the period of one-year. Analyses of the association between baseline characteristic and the occurence of disease exacerbation was performed. In this study, the patients included in the previous research will be contacted and invited to participate in a complete evaluation after a three-year period. The association of the changes in dyspnea perception, spirometry variables, body composition, quality of life and exercise tolerance measures with disease prognostic will studied.

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.
