SMi Group

Posted 17th June 2016.

SMi Group reports: The 8th annual COPD conference will be running at Holiday Inn Kensington Forum, London, UK on 19th – 20th October 2016.

COPD accounts for a substantial number of deaths in Great Britain: it has consistently given rise to between 25,000 and 30,000 deaths each year over the last 25 years. (Source: www.hse.gov.uk/Statistics)

Chronic and with a progressive worsening characteristic, COPD could present huge problems in the developed world with the increase in opportunistic infections and long-term infections, especially as it is non-curable. As such, prevention, early diagnosis and patient monitoring are the primary means to tame the disease.

Development of COPD has been slow despite the increased cases. The 8th annual COPD conference will be dissecting the core issues and explore alternatives to accelerate treatment development!
