Sputum microbiomic clustering in asthma and COPD reveals a Haemophilus‐predominant subgroup
Airway ecology is altered in asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Anti‐microbial interventions might have benefit in subgroups of airway disease. Differences in sputum microbial profiles at acute exacerbation of airways disease are reflected by the γProteobacteria:Firmicutes (γP:F) ratio. We hypothesized that sputum microbiomic clusters exist in stable airways disease, which can be differentiated by the sputum γP:F ratio.
