ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a study titled "A 4-year trial of tiotropium in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)," conducted by researcher D.P. Tashkin and colleagues. In patients with COPD, most of whom were using long-acting-agonists and inhaled steroids, tiotropium improved quality of life and reduced exacerbations but did not reduce rate of decline in forced expiratory volume.
