Two CHRN susceptibility variants for COPD are genetic determinants of emphysema and chest computed tomography manifestations in Chinese patients


Quantitative computed tomography (CT) measures of emphysema have been shown to be associated with increased mortality in humans, but genetic variants affecting the quantitative parameters of chest CT that measure degree of emphysema have not yet been examined. In this study, using available chest CT data from a total of 344 emphysema patients, we assessed… (More)
