...as surrogate markers for lung function in different models. We found that 28 (20.4%) of our COPD patients were frequent exacerbators. All three multiple linear regression models for identifying risk factors for frequent exacerbations were significant (p< 0.001).

...s performed to determine lung functions.
Results: The two groups (study group and placebo-treated group) were compared for FEV1, FEV1% predicted, PEFR and PEFR % predicted. There was 1.06 L increase in FEV1 in study group compared to 0.8 L in placebo group (p<0.05). The mean FEV1 in the study group was 47.75 % predicted as compared to 43.52% predicted in the placebo group. Similarly, PEFR a...
