Track 1 Lungs and its Functions; An Overview

The lungs are a pair of organs in the chest that are primarily responsible for the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide between the air and blood. The exchange of the air between the lungs and blood are through the arterial and venous system. Arteries and veins both carry and move blood throughout the body, but the process for each is very different. The lungs are a pair of cone-shaped organs made up of spongy, pinkish-grey tissue. They take up most of the space in the chest, or the thorax (the part of the body between the base of the neck and diaphragm). One main stem bronchus leads to the right lung and one to the left lung. In the lungs, the main stem bronchi divide into smaller bronchi and then into even smaller tubes called bronchioles. Bronchioles end in tiny air sacs called alveoli. Breathing becomes more challenging in chronic obstructive lung disease because more mucus and also infection is produced in the lungs. The bronchioles become inflamed and narrower in COPD patient.

 Track 2 Causes of COPD

COPD is a disease that involves inflammation and thickening of the airways. It also involves destruction of the tissue of the lung where oxygen is exchanged. It is described by the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease as “a preventable and treatable disease…characterized by airflow limitation that is not fully reversible. The airflow limitation is usually progressive and associated with an abnormal inflammatory response of the lung to noxious particles or gases. This progressive and relentless loss of lung function is caused by emphysema due to destruction of lung parenchyma with mycobacterial geneticsSmoking (long term smokers), Chronic Bronchitis, Inherited factors (genes) and by narrowing of small airways as a result of chronic inflammatory mediators and fibrosis and loss of elastic recoil. This results in progressive airflow limitation, air trapping, and progressive shortness of breath on exertion.

Track 3 Pathophysiology of COPD

The current paradigm for the pathogenesis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is that chronic airflow limitation results from an abnormal inflammatory response to inhaled particles and gases in the lung. Airspace inflammation appears to be different in susceptible smokers and Chronic Inflammation involves a predominance of inhaled irritants such as CD8+ T lymphocytes, neutrophils, and macrophages, B cells and macrophages to accumulate. When activated, these cells initiate an inflammatory cascade that triggers the release of inflammatory mediators such as tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α), and leads   to   Structural changes.  Airway remodelling in COPD is a direct result of the inflammatory response associated with COPD and leads to narrowing of the airways. Three main factors contribute to this: peril bronchial fibrosis, build-up of scar tissue and Infection Control from damage to the airways and over-multiplication of the epithelial cells lining the airways. Parenchymal destruction is associated with loss of lung tissue elasticity and interstitial lung disease, which occurs as a result of destruction of the structures supporting and feeding the alveoli. This means that the small airways collapse during exhalation, impeding airflow, trapping air in the lungs and reducing lung capacity.

 Track 4 COPD and Co-Morbidities

Comorbidities such as cardiac disease, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, osteoporosis, and psychological disorders are commonly reported in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) but with great variability. Tobacco smoking is a risk factor for many of these comorbidities as well as for COPD, making it difficult to draw conclusions about the relationship between COPD and these comorbidities including Lung Cancer. Epidemiological studies and large clinical trials have helped us to understand the importance of comorbidities with interstitial lung disease; however recent large epidemiologic studies have confirmed the independent detrimental effects of these comorbidities on patients with COPD associated with Musculoskeletal System. Many of these comorbidities are now considered to be part of the commonly prevalent to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. The common ground between most of these extra pulmonary manifestations is chronic systemic inflammation.

Track 5 Drugs Acting on COPD

Many treatments can help ease the symptoms and slow the progression of the illness. There are several paths for the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. However, lifestyle changes and treatments can help you feel better, stay more active, and slow the progress of the disease. Health care provider may prescribe medications to control the symptoms of COPD like bronchodilators, anti-inflammatories, and antibiotics with targeted drug therapy. The main therapeutic options for the management of COPD are inhaled corticosteroids and bronchodilators. Inhaled corticosteroids significantly reduce inflammatory cells in the lungs made drug development research as well as systemic inflammatory markers such as C-reactive protein, compared with placebo with Internal Medicine. The goals of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease treatment include relieving symptoms, slowing the progress of the disease, preventing and treating complications, and improving overall health status. In patients with COPD bronchodilators improve lung function to some extent and relieve dyspnea. Within short-acting   bronchodilators, ipratropium is as effective as salbutamol (sympathomimetic agent) with fewer adverse effects. Presently, maintenance therapy is based on long-acting inhaled bronchodilators.

Track 6 Clinical Evaluation of COPD

Assessment of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is important to establish an accurate diagnosis, assist in making therapeutic decisions, measuring outcomes for clinical and research purposes. Assessment of patients with COPD for both clinical and research purposes should incorporate a variety of different outcomes. There are outcome measures that have been successfully incorporated in large clinical trials and the design and outcomes of these trials can be used to plan future clinical investigations in COPD. The most widely used current definitions of COPD are provided by two current clinical practice guidelines.

 Track 7 Diagnostics Techniques of COPD

Clinical history and physical examination should help to determine the possible cause and site of respiratory disease. The results of the history, physical examination, and chest x-ray often suggest what additional testing may be needed to determine what is causing the person's symptoms.  A test for lung disorders is done by measuring the lungs' capacity. Transthoracic fine needle aspirates of lung often are useful in the diagnosis of fungal pneumonia but have lower yields in the definitive diagnosis of solitary pulmonary lesions. Solitary pulmonary function masses often require transthoracic lung biopsy or surgical excision for definitive diagnosis with medical screening. Transthoracic ultrasonography is a sensitive diagnostic tool for pleural disease (eg, pleural effusion, pneumothorax) and for parenchymal lung disease when lesions are adjacent to the pleural surface.

  Track 8 Developments in COPD Management

The aim of the present study is to manage the impact of COPD on health status by Characterization of human lung tissues by advanced molecular, biochemical, microbiological, and histopathological methods. A better understanding of the cellular and molecular mechanisms that are involved in the underlying inflammatory and destructive processes has revealed several new targets for which drugs are now in development, and the prospects for finding new treatments are good. Research progress in COPD is hampered by a lack of fundamental knowledge regarding the pathology of this disease, particularly with regard to small airways. Changes with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease in the structure, cellular composition, chronic inflammatory status, and chemical milieu of the lung are poorly defined, as are the relationships of these changes to clinical manifestations of the disease. Characterization of lung tissues can now be performed with exquisite detail, using advanced methods of immunology. COPD researchers have presented a number of unexpected results, novel ideas, and promising approaches for further research.

 Track 9 Advancement in Lung Surgeries

Surgery is needed to take biopsies (tissue samples) of the lung for diagnosis. Recent advances in optic/video systems and endoscopic operating instruments have made thoracoscopic easier and more accurate than 20 years ago. The operative mortality rate was low (1%) and the diagnostic accuracy high (99%). Thoracoscopy has been performed at an increasing frequency in recent years because of its expanded applications, especially in the areas of therapeutic or operative procedures such as carbon dioxide laser treatment of spontaneous pneumothorax or diffuse bullous emphysema and Lung volume reduction and also in the treatment of various airway diseases. Two common ways to do surgery on your lungs are thoracotomy and video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS). It involves passing a telescopic camera through small cuts in the chest to examine the lungs or pleura (linings of the lung) under video guidance and also associated with lung transplantation.

 Track 10 Control Measures for Prevention of COPD

People with COPD have difficulty clearing their lungs of bacteria, dusts and other pollutants in the air. This makes them at risk for lung infections that may cause further damage to the lungs. Historically, acute toxicity was associated with occupational exposures to concentrations of soluble beryllium salts greater than 100 μg/m3. With the advent of industrial control measures to minimize air levels, acute pulmonary syndromes have virtually disappeared in respective to COPD. In addition to environmental exposure, Occupational epidemiology genetic predisposition with pulmonary critical care seems to have a major role in the development of CBD. A variant of the human leukocyte antigen (HLA-DPb1 [Glu69]) is found in 80% to 97% of patients with CBD and in only 30% of controls.

Funding Associations

12 million US adults are diagnosed with COPD. CDC estimates that another 12 million have disease and it costs the economy almost $ billion a year, including$ 29 billion in direct medical cost

CHEST Foundation Research Grant in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease $50,000 1-year grant

In Europe 6.3 million funds are releasing per year in order to diagnosis and treatment analysis

CDC estimates that 50 to 80 million people are suffering with the disease.

Market Research

The global COPD market is estimated to currently be worth $11.3 billion, and is forecast to reach a value of $15.6 billion by 2019. Much of this growth will be fuelled by a high number of new, more efficacious and convenient products entering the market particularly in USA Europe, Middle East and Asia specific and commanding greater value compared to the therapies already in the market.

Between 3 and 7 million Americans are currently diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and the true prevalence is probably greater than 16 million (1). Many of these individuals suffer years of progressive discomfort and disability. With the number of deaths per year attributed to this disease at approximately 100,000 and increasing, COPD is now the fourth leading cause of death in this country (2) and is expected to be third by the year 2020. Better means are clearly needed for the prevention and treatment of COPD,

This report updates surveillance results for COPD throughout the world. From 1999 to 2011, the overall age-adjusted prevalence of having been diagnosed with COPD declined in 2011, 6.5% of adults (approximately 13.7 million) reported having been diagnosed with COPD. The global Europe  market COPD and asthma devices market would reach $34.3 billion by 2020, registering a CAGR of 4.5% during 2014 - 2020. Considering the growth and market size, Dry Powder Inhalers (DPIs) will be the most lucrative market segment of the COPD and Asthma devices (inhalers) market by 2020.

Projection Rate on COPD

The global market for COPD has been estimated to be close to US$ 12 billion in 2013. With a high number of new and more efficient and convenient drugs crowding the market, it is expected that this market would grow at a CAGR of 8% to reach close to US$ 17.5 billion by 2018.

By 2018, it is expected that the combinations of LABA/LAMA would the leading drugs driving sales in the COPD therapy market and by 2021, these drugs would account for more than 25% of the market share. While in 2013, close to 50% of the global market was accounted by the US, with the other regions together accounting for 50%. However, it is expected that by 2018, the share of the USA would reduce marginally to 45%, while the lost share of this region would be taken over by the Asian region.

Many of the elderly who are affected have other chronic and often disabling conditions, and the number of elderly affected is expected to rise. COPD is currently the fourth leading cause of death in the United States. And is forecasted to rank fifth worldwide in disease burden by the year 2020.
