Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a serious respiratory pathology characterized by irreversible limitation of expiratory flow and includes chronic obstructive bronchitis, chronic airflow limitation, and emphysema. To determine whether xanthine oxidase activity increased in the airspaces of COPD patients, we examined bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BAL) from COPD patients recruited during a 2-year clinical study. Filtered BAL supernatant from COPD patients and healthy nonsmoking… CONTINUE READING
