Cites a study which examines various biological defects underlying oxidative damage in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Information that COPD is the only leading cause of death with a rising prevalence; Conclusion of the study that COPD patients with hypoxaemia had higher basal and resistance exercise induced levels of oxidatively damaged lipids and proteins in the vastus lateralis muscle than non-hypoxaemic patients.
