Differences of Small Airways Function Between Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease(COPD) and Asthma-copd Overlap(ACO)


Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to research the differences of small airways function between subjects with diagnosis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease(COPD) and asthma-COPD overlap(ACO).The assessment of quality of life is also carried out through questionnaires.

Detailed Study Description

This is a randomized,open-label study to research the differences of small airways function between simple chronic obstructive pulmonary disease(COPD) and asthma-COPD overlap(ACO).Assessment of small airways is conducted at baseline,including forced expired volume in one second(FEV1),forced vital capacity(FVC),peak expiratory flow(PEF),maximum expiratory flow rate at 75% of vital capacity(MEF75),maximum expiratory flow rate at 50% of vital capacity(MEF50),maximum expiratory flow rate at 25% of vital capacity(MEF25),impulse oscillometry,diffusion function,residual volume(RV) and total lung capacity(TLC).Budesonide(160ug) and formoterol(4.5ug) bid will be given to both groups(chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and asthma-COPD overlap) for 3 months.Quality of life is assessed through questionnaires including modified Medical Research Council dyspnoea scale(mMRC),St George's Respiratory Questionnaire(SGRQ) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease assessment test(CAT).All of the patients will have a follow-up visit after 3 months` treatment.
