The utility of inflammatory markers to predict readmissions and mortality in COPD cases with or without eosinophilia

Abstract

BACKGROUND COPD exacerbations requiring hospitalization increase morbidity and mortality. Although most COPD exacerbations are neutrophilic, approximately 10%-25% of exacerbations are eosinophilic. AIM We aimed to evaluate mortality and outcomes of eosinophilic and non-eosinophilic COPD exacerbations and identify new biomarkers that predict survival… (More)
