Tryptophan catabolism in acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Exacerbations are a leading cause of morbidity in COPD. The objective of this study was to identify metabolomic biomarkers of acute exacerbations of COPD (AECOPD).

Hospital management of acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
The course of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is often complicated by episodes of acute worsening of respiratory symptoms, which may lead to escalation of therapy and occasionally emergency department visits and hospitalization. Acute ex

Systemic corticosteroids for acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are a major cause of hospital admission and mortality. They contribute to long-term decline in lung function, physical capacity and quality of life. The most common causes are infect

Predictors of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease exacerbations.
A frequent-exacerbation phenotype of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) exists that is independent of disease severity. Establishment of methods to predict 'frequent exacerbators' is critical. The purpose of this review is to critically ass

Role of infection in exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
In this review, we present the latest findings on the cause, pathogenesis and management of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and an infective phenotype.

The prevalence of pulmonary embolism among patients suffering from acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
The clinical diagnosis of acute pulmonary embolism (PE) in patients with acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is often difficult due to the similarity in the presenting symptoms of the two conditions. The purpose of this

Airway microbiome dynamics in exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Specific bacterial species are implicated in the pathogenesis of exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). However, recent studies of clinically stable COPD patients have demonstrated a greater diversity of airway microbiota, who

Sputum eicosanoid profiling in exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Eicosanoids are small lipid molecules with diverse biological functions in the airways.

YKL-40 expression in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: relation to acute exacerbations and airway remodeling.
Recent studies suggest that YKL-40, also called chitinase-3-like-1 protein, has been implicated in the pathogenesis of various inflammatory diseases. It is currently unknown, however, whether YKL-40 plays a role in acute exacerbations of chronic obst

Corticosteroids in the treatment of acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a chronic and progressive disease that affects an estimated 10% of the world's population over the age of 40 years. Worldwide, COPD ranks in the top ten for causes of disability and death. Given the sig
