5.8.2. Data sources

 

The data presented in this section are:

Although COPD and asthma are considered as two different entities (Fabbri et al 2003), epidemiologically, they partly coexist in the general population. This was confirmed in the study by Viegi et al performed in Italy: among asthmatic patients, 14% in Po Delta and 11% in Pisa also reported chronic bronchitis or emphysema, whereas, among patients with chronic bronchitis or emphysema, 31% in Po Delta and 14% in Pisa also reported asthma (Viegi et al 2004).
