Long-term prognosis of asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and asthma-chronic obstructive pulmonary disease overlap in the Copenhagen City Heart study: a prospective population-based analysis

Post date: Jul 6, 2016 8:27:48 AM

The results show that in the long term, individuals with asthma-COPD overlap show considerable heterogeneity in lung function, hospital admissions, and survival, depending on the age when asthma manifests itself. In particular, the group with asthma-COPD overlap and late onset of asthma is susceptible and has a very poor prognosis according to lung function decline, hospital admissions, and survival.
