COPD: Marker for Early Detection of Lung Damage

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[10/04/2012] Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a widespread disease. Around ninety per cent of cases are the result of smoking. Now a research team from the University Department of Surgery at MedUni Vienna has discovered a protein marker in the blood that can already indicate lung damage during the early stages of COPD, before a decrease in lung volume is detected by a pulmonary function test.COPD: Marker for Early Detection of Lung Damage - Read more
