Prognostic value of nutritional status in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
TLDR
It is concluded that low BMI is an independent risk factor for mortality inSubjects with COPD, and that the association is strongest in subjects with severe COPD. Expand
Developing COPD: a 25 year follow up study of the general population
TLDR
The absolute risk of developing COPD among continuous smokers is at least 25%, which is larger than was previously estimated. Expand
Body mass, fat-free body mass, and prognosis in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease from a random population sample: findings from the Copenhagen City Heart Study.
TLDR
FFMI provides information in addition to BMI and assessment of FFM should be considered in the routine assessment of COPD. Expand
A 15-year follow-up study of ventilatory function in adults with asthma.
TLDR
Data from a longitudinal epidemiologic study of the general population in a Danish city, the Copenhagen City Heart Study, is used to analyze changes over time in the forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) in adults with self-reported asthma and adults without asthma. Expand
Regular physical activity reduces hospital admission and mortality in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: a population based cohort study
TLDR
The recommendation that COPD patients be encouraged to maintain or increase their levels of regular physical activity should be considered in future COPD guidelines, since it is likely to result in a relevant public health benefit. Expand
Long-term effect of inhaled budesonide in mild and moderate chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: a randomised controlled trial
TLDR
Inhaled budesonide was of no clinical benefit in COPD patients recruited from the general population by screening and the role of long-term inhaled corticosteroids in the treatment of mild to moderate COPD is questioned. Expand
Once‐Daily Single‐Inhaler Triple versus Dual Therapy in Patients with COPD
TLDR
Triple therapy with fluticasone furoate, umeclidinium, and vilanterol resulted in a lower rate of moderate or severe COPD exacerbations than flutic asonefuroate–vilanterol or u meclid inium–vilAnterol in this population. Expand
Lung-Function Trajectories Leading to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.
TLDR
It is suggested that low FEV1 in early adulthood is important in the genesis of COPD and that accelerated decline inFEV1 is not an obligate feature of COPd. Expand
Prediction of the clinical course of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, using the new GOLD classification: a study of the general population.
TLDR
The new stratification performs well by identifying individuals at risk of exacerbations and Surprisingly, subgroup B, characterized by more severe dyspnea, had significantly poorer survival than group C, in spite of a higher FEV(1) level. Expand
C-reactive protein as a predictor of prognosis in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
TLDR
CRP is a strong and independent predictor of future COPD outcomes in individuals with airway obstruction and among those older than 70 yr with a tobacco consumption above 15 g/d and an FEV(1)% predicted of less than 50. Expand
