BACKGROUND Little is known about airway remodelling in bronchial biopsies (BB) in smokers and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). We conducted an initial pilot study comparing BB from COPD patients with nonsmoking controls. This pilot study suggested the presence of reticular basement membrane (Rbm) fragmentation and altered vessel distribution in COPD. METHODS To determine whether Rbm fragmentation and altered vessel distribution in BB were specific for COPD we designed a cross… CONTINUE READING
