BACKGROUND HIV is associated with accelerated decline in lung function and increased risk for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Recently there has been growing attention towards the impairment in the diffusing capacity of the lungs for carbon monoxide (DLCO), a marker of pulmonary gas exchange, observed among persons living with HIV. While increased emphysema can contribute to the DLCO impairment observed, other factors may drive this association. METHODS Utilizing cross-sectional da...

Rationale Racial residential segregation has been associated with worse health outcomes, but the link with COPD morbidity has not been established. Objectives To investigate whether racial residential segregation is associated with COPD morbidity among urban Black adults with or at risk of COPD. Methods Racial residential segregation was assessed using isolation index, based on 2010 decennial census and baseline address, for Black former and current smokers in the multi-center SPIROMICS study of...

Survivors of COVID-19 are a vulnerable population, with complex needs owing to lingering symptoms and complications across multiple organ systems. Those who required hospitalization or intensive care are also at risk for post-hospital syndrome and post-ICU syndromes, with attendant cognitive, psychological, and physical impairments, and high levels of healthcare utilization. Effective ambulatory care for COVID-19 survivors requires coordination across multiple subspecialties, which can be burden...

In Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), anaemia is associated with increased morbidity, but the relationship between haemoglobin over its entire observed range and morbidity is poorly understood. Such an understanding could guide future therapeutic targeting of haemoglobin in COPD management. Leveraging the COPDGene® study, we conducted a cross-sectional analysis of haemoglobin from COPD participants, examining symptoms, quality of life, functional performance, and acute exacerbations o...

Background Millions of Americans are living in food deserts in the United States, however the role of the local food environment on COPD has not been studied. The aim of this study is to determine the association between food deserts and COPD-related outcomes. Method In this cross-sectional analysis we linked data collected from SPIROMICS (SubPopulations and InteRmediate Outcome Measures in COPD Study) between 2010 and 2015 and food desert data, defined as an underserved area that lacks access t...

Worldwide, more than 4 million deaths annually are attributed to indoor air pollution. This largely preventable exposure represents a key target for reducing morbidity and mortality worldwide. Significant respiratory health effects are observed, ranging from attenuated lung growth and development in childhood to accelerated lung function decline and is determined by chronic obstructive pulmonary disease later in life. Personal exposure to household air pollutants include household characteristic...
