Extract

Introduction: On-line breath analysis is a painless, non-invasive method to get insights into the metabolism of patients. Using real-time mass spectrometry, we investigated the profiles of volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds (VOC, sVOC) in exhaled breath of patients suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) with and without frequent exacerbations. The aim of the study was to discriminate between the two groups as well as to get insights into underlying metabolic differences and to better understand the pathogenesis of exacerbations.
