Congratulations to Robert Gregg for the acceptance of his AJRCCM paper (“Blue journal”), which is entitled “Early Evidence of COPD Obscured by Race-Specific Prediction Equations”.
This paper examines the impact of race-specific equations in the determination of the COPD disease status and severity. The main finding is that current race-specific equations underestimate the disease severity in African-Americans.
Congratulations Robert !
