      Background Previous studies have reported an association between weight increase and excess lung function decline in young adults followed for short periods. We aimed to estimate lung function trajectories during adulthood ...

      Smoking is the most well-established cause of chronic airflow obstruction (CAO) but particulate air pollution and poverty have also been implicated. We regressed sex-specific prevalence of CAO from 41 Burden of Obstructive ...
    • Physical activity and lung function—Cause or consequence? 

      Bédard, Annabelle; Carsin, Anne-Elie; Fuertes, Elaine; Accordini, Simone; Dharmage, Shyamali C.; Garcia-Larsen, Vanessa; Heinrich, Joachim; Janson, Christer; Johannessen, Ane; Leynaert, Bénédicte; Sánchez-Ramos, José Luis; Peralta, Gabriela P.; Pin, Isabelle; Squillacioti, Giulia; Weyler, Joost; Jarvis, Deborah; Garcia-Aymerich, Judith (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Concerns exist that the positive association of physical activity with better lung function, which has been suggested in previous longitudinal studies in smokers, is due to reverse causation. To investigate this, we applied ...
    • Restrictive spirometry pattern is associated with low physical activity levels. A population based international study

      Introduction: Restrictive spirometry pattern is an under-recognised disorder with a poor morbidity and mortality prognosis. We compared physical activity levels between adults with a restrictive spirometry pattern and with ...
