PURPOSE: The risk of exacerbation in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)depends on the severity of disease and other less well known factors.Predictive models of exacerbation are more accurate than the forced expiratory volume in one second(FEV1).Whether high blood eosinophils are associated with COPD exacerbations among individuals with COPD in the general population is known.The aim our study was to assess the the systemic( blood eosinophilia,C-reactive protein,periostin) and pulmonary inflammatory biomarkers( exhaled FeNO ,sputum eosinophilia and neutrophlia) as predictors for exacerbations of severe COPD.
