Project: Evaluation of the relationship between inflammation of small airways and irreversible airways obstruction in patients with chronic bronchitis.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-93 – 31-DEC-99
- To examine in smokers with chronic bronchitis whether small airways show signs of inflammation and whether this type of inflammation differs if chronic bronchitis is accompanied by chronic airways obstruction. These findings will be compared to the morphology of samples taken from more central airways (bronchial biopsies).
