Predicting inhaled steroid responsiveness using blood eosinophil counts: personalising long-term management of COPD in primary care

Abstract:

Background

Management of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), including initiation of inhaled corticosteroids (ICS), has thus far generally been based on a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach. However, benefits of ICS are unclear, and they may harm some patients.
