Airflow limitation, lung volumes and systemic inflammation in a general population.

Abstract

Although several levels of evidence have suggested an association between systemic inflammation and spirometric lung volumes, data addressing the potential interrelationship between airflow limitation and inflammatory markers are sparse and remain controversial. Potential associations between high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP), fibrinogen and lung… (More)
