BRITISH COLUMBIA – The number of patients with COPD could increase by more than 150% by 2030, despite a decrease in the number of smokers, says a new study from the University of British Columbia. The study, published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, predicts the greatest increase in COPD—220%—will be among those age 75 years and older. “Many people think that COPD will soon be a problem of the past, because smoking is declining in the industrialized world,” said senior author Dr. Mohsen Sadatsafavi, assistant professor in the faculties of pharmaceutical sciences and medicine. “But aging is playing a much bigger role, and this is often ignored. We expect these B.C.-based predictions to be applicable to Canada and many other industrialized countries.”
