Lung Diseases are the absolute most basic medical condition in the world. Smoking, infections, and genetics are main cause for lung diseases. The lungs are a piece of mechanical assembly, growing and loosening up a great many occasions every day to get oxygen and remove carbon dioxide. Lung infection can result from part of the lung.
- Cystic Fibrosis (CF)/ Bronchiectasis.
- Lung cancer
- Pleural effusion
A lung transplant expels an individual's diseased lung and replaces it with a healthy one. The healthy lung originates from a benefactor who has died. Lung transplants are utilized for individuals who are probably going to die from lung diseases within 1 to 2 years. Their conditions are severe to different medications, for example, drugs or breathing gadgets, no longer work. Lung transplants regularly are utilized to treat individuals who have serious COPD, Cystic fibrosis, Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, Alpha-1 antitrypsin inadequacy and pulmonary hypertension.
Respiratory Tract infection (RTI) includes various infectious diseases of the respiratory tract. An infection of this type classified as upper respiratory tract infection (URI or URTI) or a lower respiratory tract infection (LRI or LRTI).
Upper respiratory tract infections include pharyngitis, laryngitis, tonsillitis, and certain types of influenza, sinusitis, otitis media and the common cold. Lower respiratory tract infections include bronchitis and pneumonia
- Upper respiratory tract infection
- Lower respiratory tract infection
Asthma and allergy
Allergy occurs when the immune system in an individual responds to allergens which are substances in condition that don't cause issues for many people. This response prompts irritation (redness and swelling) that causes unfavorably susceptible conditions, which can influence different parts of the body, for example, hypersensitive rhinitis, skin inflammation or urticaria, hypersensitivity and asthma.
- Dust mites.
- Be short of breath
- Breathe quickly
- Feel your chest get tight
Pathogenesis of COPD
Pathologic changes in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) happen in the large (central) airway routes, the little (peripheral) bronchioles, and the lung parenchyma. Most instances of COPD are the consequence of introduction to noxious stimuli,, regularly tobacco smoke. The normal inflammatory response is enhanced in people inclined to COPD advancement. Increased quantities of activated polymorphonuclear leukocytes and macrophages discharge elastases in a way that can't be neutralized viably by antiproteases, bringing about lung destruction.
- Chronic bronchitis
- Refractory asthma
CO-Morbidities in COPD
Comorbidities like heart disease, hypertension, osteoporosis, diabetes mellitus and psychological disorders are generally reported in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Tobacco smoking is a hazard factor for huge numbers of these comorbidities just as for COPD, making it hard to draw conclusions about the connection among COPD and these comorbidities.
Exacerbations drive wellbeing status and contribute to disease enhancement and exacerbation prevention is a key objective for treatment of COPD. Most of COPD exacerbations are activated by respiratory viral and bacterial infections.
- Type 1 exacerbations
- Type 2 exacerbations
- Type 3 exacerbations
Epidemiology of COPD
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a main source of world-wide mortality and disability. On average ∼5– 15% of adults in industrialized nations have COPD characterized by spirometry. In 1990, COPD was determined as at the twelfth position worldwide reason for consolidated mortality and disability but it is expected to be the fifth cause by 2020
COPD has an chronic long-lasting course with irreversible decrease of forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1), increasing nearness of dyspnoea and other respiratory manifestations, and dynamic decay of wellbeing status. After analysis the 10-yr survival rate is ∼50% with more than 33% of patients dying because of respiratory inadequacy.
Management of COPD
COPD management plan includes
(1) evaluate and screen disease
(2) reduce risk factors
(3) manage stable COPD
(4) manage exacerbations.
Prevention of COPD
COPD can be prevented by avoiding tobacco exposure and toxic fumes. Vaccination against viral influenza and Streptococcus pneumoniae is prescribed.
- Avoid exposure
- Help fight for clean air
Lung cancer is a condition where cells multiply in the lungs uncontrollably. This causes the development of tumors that decrease an individual's capacity to breathe. This development can spread beyond the lung by the process of metastasis into close-by tissue or different parts of the body.
- Squamous cell cancer
- Large cell carcinoma
- Undifferentiated non-small cell lung cancer
Interstitial Lung Disease
Interstitial Lung Disease is a general class that includes a wide range of lung conditions. All interstitial lung diseases influence the interstitium, a part of the lungs' anatomic structure.
- Interstitial pneumonia
- Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis
- Nonspecific interstitial pneumonitis
- Hypersensitivity pneumonitis
Pulmonary hypertension is a kind of hypertension that influences the supply routes in your lungs and the right side of your heart.
- pulmonary arterial hypertension
- pulmonary hypertension due to left heart disease
- pulmonary hypertension due to lung disease and/or chronic hypoxia.
- pulmonary hypertension due to blood clots in the lungs
Cardiovascular Risk and COPD
Individuals with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease(COPD) have a higher inclination and mortality from cardiovascular diseases, and diminishing cardiovascular mortality is the target region for decreasing mortality in individuals with COPD.
- Lack of exercise
- High LDL or low HDL cholesterol levels
Therapeutic Devices & Evaluation
The common lung function tests are Spirometry, Chest X-ray, CT scan, Arterial blood gas analysis, Ventilation perfusion scan, Endobronchial Ultrasound (EBUS), Exhaled Nitric Oxide Test, Methacholine Challenge Test and many more.
Pulmonary diseases-Treatment and therapies
Pulmonary, Critical care and Sleep
Pulmonary, Critical care and Sleep includes various diseases related pulmonary diseases, sleep disorders and its critical care.
- Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH)
- Pulmonary hypertension due to left-sided heart disease
Occupational & Environmental lung Disease
Occupational & Environmental lung diseases are group of diseases caused by the inhalation of dust, chemicals, or proteins. The severity of the disease is identified with the material inhaled and the intensity of exposure.
Some of the Environmental lung diseases caused by Arsenic, Asbestos, BCME, Beryllium, Cadmium, Chromium, Coal dust, Diesel exhaust, Indium lung, Nickel, Silica and Tobacco smoke etc

Global Market research on COPD
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. The drugs driving this growth include once-daily LABA/LAMA
fixed-dose combinations such as QVA-149, umeclidinium bromide/vilanterol and olodaterol/tiotropium.
The opportunity in the U.S. and China asthma and COPD drugs market is slated to rise from a valuation of US$13.0 bn in 2015 to be worth US$18.7 bn by 2024. If these values hold true, the market is likely to expand at a modest CAGR of 4.1% therein.
North America leads the global market for asthma &COPD drugs and devices. North America was followed by Europe in terms of market capitalization. Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest regional market for asthma and COPD owing to the increased incidence of asthma & other respiratory diseases in industrial regions.
The current asthma and COPD market is primarily driven by increasing patient population. It is also growing due to factors such as price erosion and expiry of patents of leading drug brands in the market. However, it is estimated that in the next five years, the global asthma and COPD drug market is expected to grow slowly and steadfast. The COPD segment was projected to be worth USD 10,593.2 million and is expected to reach USD 12,619.8 million in 2017.
In Europe, LABA / ICS combinations and LTA (Montelukast) drugs are more popular for asthma and COPD treatment.
