Early chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: definition, assessment, and prevention.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the third leading cause of death worldwide. COPD, however, is a heterogeneous collection of diseases with differing causes, pathogenic mechanisms, and physiological effects. Therefore a comprehensive ap

[Invasive pulmonary aspergillosis in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease].
Invasive pulmonary aspergillosis (IPA) is a common infection in immunocompromised patients with hematological malignancies or allogenic stem cell transplantation, and is less frequent in the context of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Mu

About the effect of pulmonary rehabilitation on lung function in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Detecting an improvement of lung function in a patient with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) following pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) may appear unexpected, but actually recent studies showed that is not so rare. In fact, in a prospective

Combined pulmonary fibrosis and emphysema: effect of pulmonary rehabilitation in comparison with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
To evaluate the effectiveness of short-term comprehensive inpatient pulmonary rehabilitation for patients with combined pulmonary fibrosis and emphysema (CPFE), and to compare responses with those of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary diseas

Quantitative emphysema assessment of pulmonary function impairment by computed tomography in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
The objective of this study was to determine the capability of quantitative emphysema by computed tomography (CT) to assess pulmonary function impairment in a population of current smokers with and without airflow limitation.

Clinical benefits of home-based pulmonary rehabilitation in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
To evaluate the benefits of home-based pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) in patients with severe and very severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Pulmonary rehabilitation: the reference therapy for undernourished patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) combines the deleterious effects of chronic hypoxia, chronic inflammation, insulin-resistance, increased energy expenditure, muscle wasting, and exercise deconditioning. As for other chronic disorders, los
