About 20 years ago, I was out of the country when one of my patients with COPD was admitted to the hospital with a COPD exacerbation
Key Words: Bronchial asthma, Vitamin D, Exacerbation
of bronchial asthma
For the secondary endpoints, there was a statistically significant increase in the time to first moderate and severe exacerbation
in METREX, with numerical, but not significant, increase in time to first exacerbation
USA], Sep 02 ( ANI ): Here's another reason for new mothers to breastfeed their babies as according to a recent study, the breastfed newborns has a 45 percent lower risk of asthma exacerbation
later in life.
Vitamin D level was measured at 0, 2, 4, and 6 months and exacerbation
of COPD, FEV1 and FVC was measured weekly.
GOLD group A: Low symptom severity, low exacerbation
The purpose of this study is to assess exacerbation
of COPD in multiple severity groups as per GOLD 2013 criteria and to find out which of the three multidimensional assessment systems BODE, DOSE or ADO index is better in predicting exacerbations
medical centers, neither acetaminophen nor ibuprofen raised the rate of exacerbations
or impaired asthma control among 300 children aged 1-5 years.
The risk of exacerbation
was greatest in those with a body mass index over 30 kg/m2 (odds ratio, 2.
For high-risk patients, this higher dose of NAC at 600 mg twice daily significantly reduced the exacerbation
frequency at 8 and 12 months, a prolonged amount of time until the first exacerbation
and an increased probability of having no exacerbations
at 1 year, compared with placebo.
The objectives of the present study were to evaluate the prevalence of biochemical exacerbation
in renal transplant patients chronically infected with HBV and to evaluate the factors related to its occurrence.
endogenous COHb levels in former smokers presenting with COPD exacerbation
were higher than the non- smoking controls and to determine whether COHb levels were associated with the severity of COPD exacerbation
as defined by the GOLD criteria.

This new algorithm stratifies patients with COPD on the basis of symptoms and exacerbation
The current study was the first to extend this research to COPD patients and examine whether EPs 7630 administration could reduce time to first exacerbation
and reduce exacerbation
frequency as an adjunctive therapy.
