Abstract

Measurement of airway function is central to the diagnosis and assessment of asthma and COPD. Many drug studies-particularly in asthma-have improvement in airway function as a major objective; even when this is not the case,airway function is almost always monitored to characterize the patients and to exclude confounding changes, Assessment of hyperinflation, exercise performance and alveolar structure/function are the most common additional aspects studied during drug trials. Many other aspects of lung function are sometimes relevant (e.g. blood gases and/or oximetry, tests of regional function (ventilation and perfusion scans), control of ventilation, skeletal and respiratory muscle function, pulmonary hypertension), but are not considered here.
