TableĀ 2 Priority areas

From: Inflammation in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and its role in cardiovascular disease and lung cancer

More definitive, prospective, human clinical studies to define the links between the inflammatory process of COPD and cardiovascular disease/lung cancer
The development of experimental/animal models to define how the inflammation in COPD increases the risk of cardiovascular disease/lung cancer
The development of targeted antiinflammatory therapies in COPD to reduce the associated cardiovascular disease/lung cancer
