AIM To study the effect of systemic inflammatory reaction in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in association with absorption of the small intestine. MATERIAL AND METHODS Small intestinal absorption was studied in 93 COPD patients (22, 36 and 35 patients at stage I, II and III, respectively) in a clinically stable stage of the(More)
The study included 93 patients (mean age 56.8+/-7.2) with COPD; 22 presented with grade 1 COPD, 36 and 35 with grade II and 111 COPD respectively. The latter group displayed reduced absorption of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates in the small intestine, the degree of dysfunction increasing with the severity of the disease, degenerative/dystrophic changes in(More)
The study included 93 patients with grade 1-3 chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in the stable clinical phase. Absorptive function of the small intestine was evaluated by biochemical methods and with the use of radionuclides; plasma tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) levels were measured by an enzyme immune-assay. Trophologic status in 44%(More)
AIM To study the specific features of the nutritional status of patients with persistent chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in relation to the hormone-regulating function of energy exchange in terms of leptin and to concurrently evaluate the functional status of fat and protein digestion and absorption and to measure body fat percentage. To assess(More)
