Title: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in ex-smokers: sputum
Cluster AnalysisGDS4265 Cluster Image
Summary: Analysis of sputum from ex-smokers with moderate (stage 2) or severe (stages 3, 4) chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Induced sputum contains inflammatory cells, predominantly neutrophils and macrophages. Results provide insight into molecular mechanisms underlying COPD progression.
