PURPOSE: COPD is a worldwide public health concern. The rapid decline in FEV1 is one of the core pathological features of COPD. Genetic polymophysim may predict the rapid decline of FEV1. To date there is no study on the genetic susceptibility correlated to rapid FEV1 decline among Chinese population. IL-6 is a key cytokine in the inflamatory process. The polymorphisms of IL-6/IL-6R gene may influence the progress of inflammation and correlates with the rapid decline of FEV1
