Research output: Contribution to journalMeeting Abstractpeer-review


Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) exacerbations are associated with increased inflammation followed by oxidative stress (OS). Malondialdehyde (MDA) negatively correlation with PFT was demonstrated (Upasana J. et al. ERJ vol. 44 no. Suppl 58 P3958) In patients who survive their first COPD-related hospitalization up to 50% have been reported for re-admission within 6 months of discharge. Up to 84% of direct costs associated with COPD are due to inpatient hospitalizations.
