    Pulmonary Section, Minneapolis Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Minnesota 55417, USA
    Am J Respir Crit Care Med 185:286-90. 2012
    ..We hypothesized that low blood levels of 25(OH)D in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) would be associated with an increased risk of acute exacerbations of COPD (AECOPD)...

    Ken M Kunisaki
    Division of Pulmonary, Allergy, Critical Care and Sleep, University of Minnesota, USA
    Ther Adv Respir Dis 2:55-64. 2008
    ..We evaluated the ability of exhaled nitric oxide (FENO) and serum inflammatory markers (C-reactive protein [CRP], interleukin-6 [IL-6], and interleukin-8 [IL-8]) to independently predict spirometric responses to ICS in patients with COPD...
