ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study conducted by researcher M.A. Puhan and colleagues to know how discrimination and calibration for prognosis are compared in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The study results revealed that the original BODE index had poor calibration and discrimination, but an updated BODE index and a simplified ADO index predicted 3-year mortality better than the original one.

    Background: Inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) constitute the cornerstone of treatment for asthma. Many studies have reported beneficial short term effects of these drugs, but there are few data on the long term effects of ICS on the decline in forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1). This study...

    Lung function level and decline are each predictive of morbidity and mortality. Evaluation of the combined effect of these measurements may help further identify high-risk groups. Using Copenhagen City Heart Study longitudinal spirometry data (n = 10,457), 16-21 year risks of chronic obstructive...

    Background: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is supposed to be classified on the basis of postbronchodilator lung function. Most longitudinal studies of COPD, though, do not have post-bronchodilator lung function available. We used pre-and post bronchodilator lung function data from...
