ABSTRACT The relationship between body weight and lung function is complex. Using a dyadic multilevel linear modeling approach, treating body mass index (BMI) and lung function as paired, within-person outcomes, we test the hypothesis that individ...

ERJ Open Research, 5(4), https://doi.org/10.1183/23120541.00186-2019

Introduction: Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a chronic and progressive lung disease that causes breathlessness and cough that worsen over time, limiting daily activities and negatively impacting quality of life. Although treatments are now av... Read More about A feasibility, randomised controlled trial of a complex breathlessness intervention in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (BREEZE-IPF): study protocol.
