5 4-7% of adult population ( 600 million patients worldwide) Prevalence expected to rise 3x in 10 years. By 2020, it becomes the 3 rd most frequent cause of death ( 4,7 million cases of death – WHO, 1999) Epidemiology

6 COPD morbidity in Hungary

7 COPD is a preventable and treatable disease state characterized by airflow limitation that is not fully reversible. The airflow limitation is usually progressive and associated with an abnormal inflammatory response of the lungs to noxious particles or gases, primarly caused by cigarette smoking. Although COPD affects the lungs, it also produces significant systemic consequences. ATS/ERS Task Force, 2004 Definition

8 CIBA Guest Symposium: Terminology, definitions and classifications of chronic pulmonary emphysema and related conditions (1959) 1./ Obstructive emphysema: abnormal permanent enlargement of the airspaces distal to the terminal bronchioles, accompanied by destruction of the alveolar walls and without obvious fibrosis. 2./ Chronic bronchitis: the presence of chronic productive cough for 3 months in each of 2 successive years in a patient in whom other causes (heart failure, tbc, bronchiectasis, tumor, lung abscess) of chronic cough have been excluded.

10 Etiology: host factors


12 Etiology: acquired risk

13 Effect of smoking on annual decline in lung function Fletcher C, Peto R: BMJ 1977:i: 1645

16 Cells orchestrating the inflammation in COPD

17 Oxidativ stress epithel, macroph.


19 Pathology Large airways : goblet cell metaplasia, increased mucus production Medium and small airways ( 7-9. generation) : inflammation similar to asthma in certain patients Small airways ( generation) : bronchial wall inflammation, degeneration, fibrosis Alveoli : elastin loss and alveolar surface loss


21 Loss of alveolar attachments in smokers Saetta et al. ARRD 1985 NormalSmoker

22 Airway muscle thickness Increase in COPD Non-smokerCOPD Saetta. 1998

23 Small airways in COPD Barnes, NEJM,2004

24 Causes of Airflow Limitation Irreversible –Fibrosis and narrowing of the airways –Loss of elastic recoil due to alveolar destruction –Destruction of alveolar support that maintains patency of small airways

25 Causes of Airflow Limitation Reversible –Accumulation of inflammatory cells, mucus, and plasma exudate in bronchi –Smooth muscle contraction in peripheral and central airways –Dynamic hyperinflation during exercise

26 Airflow limitation = Driving pressure (parenchyma) Resistance (small airways)

27 27 Low V A /Q areas High V A /Q areas Alveolar attachments loss Small airways narrowing EMPHYSEMA Airway wall thickening SMALL AIRWAYS ABNORMALITIES Barberà et al. ARRD 1990 Alveolar wall destruction Air space enlargement Capillary network reduction Structure - function relationships in COPD....

28 COPD asthma neutrophils no AHR* no bronchodilation no corticosteroid effect 10 – 40 % eosinophils AHR* good bronchodilator effect good corticosteroid effect Wheezy bronchitis * AHR= airway hyperreactivity reversibility threshold: 12 –15% (>200ml) FEV 1 - increase

29 Characteristics of phenotypes bronchitis emphysema Dynamic lung volumes decreased decreased ( FEV 1, FEV 1 /FVC) Static lung volumes TLC normal or mild increase increased RV moderate increase increasd Diffusion capacity normal or mild decreased decrease Blood gas hypoxaemia, hypercapnia hypoxaemia in end-stage exercise hypoxaemia: no change, improves hypoxaemia or deteriorates deteriorates Cor pulmonale frequently seldom

30 Classification ( GOLD 2006 ) FEV 1 (ref%* ) symptoms cough, sputum mild 80 % morning sputum, ( FEV1/FVC 70% ) minimal breathing dyscomfort moderate % dyspnea on moderate exertion with or without wheezing, discolored sputum, severe 30 – 50 % acute worsening with infection, with significant erosion of QoL very severe < 30% n cough, wheezing, breathlessness on minimal exertion signs of RHF, significantly impaired QoL
