Abstract

Rationale: Recently, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) RNA has been identified by reverse transcriptase–polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) from a high percentage of patients with stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). These data raise the possibility of persistent low-grade infection in this population, which could have implications in COPD pathogenesis
