Scientists have identified several genes associated with rapid lung function decline in former and current smokers that might help identify people who are most at risk of developing smoking-related conditions like chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD). These genes could also improve future clinical trials by helping to identify patients who are more likely to benefit from experimental treatments, according to investigators. Their findings were reported in the study “Bronchial gene expression signature associated with rate…
