    Dept of Medicine, Division of Respiratory Medicine, Karolinska University Hospital, Solna, Stockholm, Sweden
    Eur Respir J 25:275-81. 2005
    ..The present study underlines the importance of careful phenotyping of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients...
  2. pmc Different inflammatory cell pattern and macrophage phenotype in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients, smokers and non-smokers
    J M Löfdahl
    Department of Medicine, Division of Respiratory Medicine, Karolinska Institutet and Karolinska University Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden
    Clin Exp Immunol 145:428-37. 2006
    ..Some alterations were found in smokers compared to non-smokers, thus indicating that changes in AM phenotype may be associated with smoking per se. The functional relevance of our findings remains to be elucidated...
  3. doi Increased intraepithelial T-cells in stable COPD
    Magnus J Löfdahl
    Department of Medicine, Division of Respiratory Medicine, Karolinska Institutet, Solna, Stockholm, Sweden
    Respir Med 102:1812-8. 2008
    ..We hypothesised that intraepithelial T-cells play a role in the response to lung irritants and that the T-cell populations would be altered and associated with signs of inflammation in COPD...

    Magnus Löfdahl
    Dept of Medicine, Karolinska Institutet, Karolinska University Hospital Solna, Stockholm Sweden

    Int J Chron Obstruct Pulmon Dis 2:643-50. 2007
    ..In conclusion, the assays used for detection of C. pneumoniae in lung tissue are feasible, and could be adapted in adequately powered studies to further confirm an association between C. pneumoniae infection and COPD...
