CB affects approximately 10 million people in the United States.19 According to recent statistics, the prevalence increases with age, is higher in females than in males (56.8 versus 29.6 cases/ 1000 persons, respectively) and is higher in non-Hispanic blacks and whites compared to Hispanics (48.6, 47.3 and 28.8/ 1000 persons, respectively) (Figure 1).19 Of the 1955 participants in the COPDGene® study with CB by symptoms (18.9%), approximately 60% had COPD (i.e., had also airflow obstruction on spirometry), 10% had restriction, and 30% had normal spirometry (i.e., CB without COPD, unpublished data). Pelkonen et al analyzed trends of CB and current smoking and found that over 25 years, the prevalence of both current smoking and CB decreased.37 Allinson et al analyzed the presence of CMH in over 4400 individuals across ages 20 to 64 and found that in each age range, current smoking was associated with an increase in CMH and smoking cessation was associated with a decrease.38 Similarly, an analysis of the COPDGene® study found that current smoking over the course of 5 years was linked to increased rates of CB, quitting smoking increased the likelihood that CB would resolve, and resuming smoking during the 5-year interval increased the likelihood of developing CB.39, A substantial proportion of CB, however, is not related to cigarette smoking, especially in young adults, females, and residents of developing countries. 3401 N Broad Street Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a heterogeneous disease with different clinical and pathophysiologic phenotypes. The damage often gets worse over time and cannot be cured. respiratory health effects of large animal farming environments. Of note, smokers with CB who decreased their daily cigarette consumption increased their median life span by 2.4 years.6 The TESAOD followed 1412 patients, of which 97 patients (6.9%) had CB at enrollment. The main characteristic of the condition is an inflammation of the bronchial tubes or bronchi, and the air passage extending from the trachea into the small airways and alveoli. 72. Severe chronic bronchitis in advanced emphysema increases mortality and hospitalizations. Cochrane Database Syst Rev. Macrolide antibiotics have immune-modulatory, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects. The adverse respiratory health outcomes in livestock farmers are believed to be secondary to increased levels of allergens, organic dusts, endotoxins, peptidoglycans and animal confinement gases.41,42 Data from a French study (AGRICAN) assessing associations between specific farming activities showed prevalence of CB in 8.4% out of 1207 farmers, specifically in those exposed to pesticides in potato farming.43 A meta-analysis by Mamane et al showed that exposure to agricultural pesticides was associated with respiratory symptoms, impaired respiratory function and increased prevalence of CB.44 Air pollution may also be a risk factor; a comprehensive study by the Committee on the Medical Effects of Air Pollutants (COMEAP) in the United Kingdom showed a possible association between the incidence and prevalence of CB and long-term exposure to air pollution.45 A systematic review showed associations between the use of solid fuels and COPD and CB, especially with wood smoke compared to other biomass fuels.46Additionally, smoking marijuana is associated with CB47 and there is emerging data that electronic cigarettes may be associated with CB.48 A recent study by Reidel et al showed that induced sputum from smokers of electronic cigarettes had similar levels of the airway mucin MUC5AC as the induced sputum of cigarette smokers.49, CB was once under the umbrella term of COPD and was thought to be one end of its spectrum of disorders.

In the aforementioned Finnish study, the cumulative incidence of CB was 22% in nonsmokers.6 An analysis of 2 separate cross sectional surveys in 1998/2000 and 2007/2010 showed similar prevalence of CB but an increase in never smokers (7.6% to 9.1%), an overall decrease in current smoking (33.6% to 26.9%) and an increase in allergic rhinitis (19.5% to 24.5%).40, Specific occupational exposure studies (coal and hard-rock miners, tunnel workers, concrete-manufacturers, and non-mining industrial workers) and world-wide community-based studies have demonstrated a link between these exposures, respiratory symptoms and the development of COPD.35 Livestock farming has also been recognized as a risk factor for developing CB. Kim V, Crapo J, Zhao H, et al. Chronic bronchitis is considered one of the top conditions for which patients seek medical attention. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a heterogeneous disease with different clinical and pathophysiologic phenotypes.1,2 COPD is currently the third leading cause of death in the world.3 Chronic bronchitis (CB) is common, affecting approximately 10 million people in the United States, the majority of which are between 44 and 65 years of age.

CB was originally defined by Dr. Charles Badham in 1814 as “A cough…that remains for many weeks or months…such patients have always an uneasy respiration, often a sense of weight, or of fluttering…the sputa are usually copious, viscid, and tenacious.” Much later, CB was defined as chronic cough and sputum production for at least 3 months a year for 2 consecutive years.12,13 This definition has been used for decades and remains the gold standard. It develops over time and is usually caused by smoking. Evidence for periciliary liquid layer depletion, not abnormal ion composition, in the pathogenesis of cystic fibrosis airways disease.

However, hearing decrements were more common (25% versus 20%, p = 0.04), and the incidence of macrolide resistance was significantly higher (81% versus 41%, p<0.001) in those treated with azithromycin.76 A post hoc analysis of the MACRO trial was done to identify the types of exacerbations and subgroups most likely to benefit from azithromycin therapy. ; Inhaled irritants from the workplace, pollution, or secondhand smoke are another common cause of chronic bronchitis. 2015;385(9971):857-866. doi: https://doi.org/10.1016/S0140-6736(14)62410-7, 83.

Please read our Publications Policy about advertising guidelines. Trends in COPD (chronic bronchitis and emphysema): morbidity and mortality. That’s what makes you cough. PDE4 inhibitors, such as roflumilast, affect mucociliary function in bronchial epithelial cells by increasing CFTR activity, augmenting airway surface liquid [ASL] volume, and stimulating ciliary beating.80, Roflumilast has been shown to improve outcomes in CB associated with COPD. The term chronic, in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, means that it lasts for a long time. Chronic respiratory symptoms, spirometry and knowledge of COPD among general population. Patients with COPD and CB had worse lung function and general health status, more respiratory symptoms, physical activity limitation and exacerbations compared to those with COPD but without CB (Figure 2).18 A recent European study found a prevalence of CB of 18% in 972 patients with COPD.

Pharmacologic therapy for CB is directed towards 3 major goals: relieving symptoms during stable disease (mucoactive agents, beta-agonists, muscarinic antagonists), reducing loss of lung function (smoking cessation), preventing exacerbations (mucoactive agents, macrolides, phosphodiesterase-4 [PDE-4 inhibitors]) and treating exacerbations (antibiotics, glucocorticoids) when they occur (Table 6).

Donaldson SH, Bennett WD, Zeman KL, Knowles MR, Tarran R, Boucher RC. The clinical phenotype identified by the SGRQ definition is nearly identical to the one identified by the classic definition in the COPDGene® study. Chronic Bronchitis Bronchitis is when the airways in your lungs, your bronchi, become inflamed. A study by Lindberg et al showed that patients with COPD and productive cough had the highest rate of exacerbations after adjusting for age, gender, BMI, heart disease and smoking status.52 A Finnish study which followed over 47,800 individuals for up to 30 years showed that individuals with CB had almost double the number of hospitalization days compared to patients without CB.53 Kim et al compared patients with severe emphysema and severe CB (using the SGRQ definition and presence of “chest trouble,” n=74) to patients without severe CB (n=576).
