RATIONALE AND AIMS Adherence to treatment guidelines in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) has been shown to be less than optimal over the COPD continuum. This retrospective study aimed to assess the implementation of COPD guidelines and potential association with long-term mortality in patients with COPD. METHODS All consecutive patient(More)
Background Nutritional status, weight loss and cachexia have important prognostic implications in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Body mass index (BMI) has been implicated in COPD risk assessment, but information is mostly limited to composite scores or to patients with stable disease.

The aim of this work was to design a quick and reliable method for the evaluation and classification of wastewater streams into treatable and non-treatable effluents for reuse/recycling. Different chemometric methods were used for this purpose handling the enormous amount of data, and additionally to find any hidden information, which would increase our(More)
Decolorization of Reactive Red 238, Reactive Orange 16, Reactive Black 5 and Reactive Blue 4 was studied in the UV/H2O2 process with H2O2 being produced electrochemically. The experimental results show that decolorization increased considerably when switching on the electrochemical production of H2O2. Complete decolorization (>99%) was achieved for all dyes(More)
