SI «Institute for Occupational Health of AMS of Ukraine», Kyiv, Ukraine

Full article (PDF), UKR

The data on ehtiology, pathogenesis, clinic, diagnostics, treatment and prevention of chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (including occupational COPD) are summarized in the article. The problem of early diagnostics, effectivenes of prophylactic medical examination of workers, exposed to hight concentration of dust in worken zone, are discussed.The possibility of antihomotoxic therapy using in the complex treatment of patients with COPD is considered.

Key words: chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, occupational risk, prevention, therapy
