Abstract:
The burden of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is considerable, both socially and economically. In many countries, COPD prevalence is directly related to the prevalence of tobacco smoking. Alternate risk factors to cigarette smoke include exposure to occupational dusts and chemicals, and indoor pollution from biomass fuels. Patients with COPD have an ongoing systemic inflammation, which can be assessed by measuring serum C-reactive protein (CRP).
