Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Much research has been conducted on the topic of COPD over the years. However, much remains to be understood, including in academic research, where genomics, epigenomics and metabolomics are current popular topics all over the world. Challenges also remain in the clinical and functional fields, in which early COPD is an entity that has been brought back into discussion from perspectives aimed at its prevention and even therapeutic strategies. The identification and treatment of COPD comorbidities represent other concerns that researchers and clinicians face in their daily practice. The impact of COPD on patients and their families is multidimensional. The personalized holistic management of the disease is an approach that all healthcare professionals must become familiar with. This Special Issue dedicated to COPD is an invitation to explore the complex dimensions that this disease entails by publishing original research and literature reviews from specialists that diagnose, treat and care for these patients throughout the course of the disease.
