BACKGROUND Although FEV1 remains the gold standard for staging COPD, the association between airway remodeling and airflow limitation remains unclear. Endobronchial optical coherence tomography (EB-OCT) was performed to assess the association between disorders of large and medium to small airways and COPD staging. We also evaluated small airway architecture(More)
AIM To investigate the association between use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) and Helicobacter pylori infection, interactive effect of H. pylori infection and NSAID use on the development of peptic ulcer disease (PUD), and the effect of H. pylori eradication therapy on PUD development. MATERIAL AND METHODS We performed a systematic(More)
