[Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: The golden decade. Implications for the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease].
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a complex and heterogeneous illness, which causes an important socio-economic burden. The last decade has witnessed significant advances in the understanding and knowledge of COPD with a paradigm shift

Pulmonary Gas Exchange Abnormalities in Mild Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. Implications for Dyspnea and Exercise Intolerance.
Several studies in mild chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) have shown a higher than normal ventilatory equivalent for carbon dioxide ([Formula: see text]e/[Formula: see text]co2) during exercise. Our objective was to examine pulmonary gas e

Chronic Pain in People With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: Prevalence, Clinical and Psychological Implications.
Background: Although pain is a common symptom in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pain characteristics such as frequency, duration and type are unclear. The primary study aim was to identify these pain characteristics in individuals with

Underrecognized comorbidities of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
COPD is associated with different comorbid diseases, and their frequency increases with age. Comorbidities severely impact costs of health care, intensity of symptoms, quality of life and, most importantly, may contribute to life span shortening. Som

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

Assessment of pulmonary rehabilitation efficacy in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients using the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease assessment test.
We evaluated the relationship between chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) assessment test (CAT) and improvements after pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) and PR efficiency in COPD patients.

Systemic manifestations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is a complex multisystem disease with comorbidities and systemic manifestations that affect respiratory symptoms, exacerbation frequency and mortality. This article gives an overview of these systemic manifestati

Animal models of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Animal models of disease have always been welcomed by the scientific community because they provide an approach to the investigation of certain aspects of the disease in question. Animal models of COPD cannot reproduce the heterogeneity of the diseas

Integrative genomics of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a complex disease with both environmental and genetic determinants, the most important of which is cigarette smoking. There is marked heterogeneity in the development of COPD among persons with similar
