Plasma pro-surfactant protein B and lung function decline in smokers

The European Respiratory Journal

Abstract

Plasma pro-surfactant protein B (pro-SFTPB) levels have recently been shown to predict the development of lung cancer in current and ex-smokers, but the ability of pro-SFTPB to predict measures of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) severity is unknown. We evaluated the perform...read more
