Target follow-up type
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Diagnosis / Prognosis - Blood sampling, FeNO, bronchoalveolar lavage, bronchoscopic tissue sampling

Patients with COPD - The following parameters are to be evaluated:
Blood eosinophils
FeNO
Eosinophils in bronchoalveolar lavage
Tissue eosinophilia (protected specimen brush sampling, endobronchial biopsy)

Patients with asthma - The following parameters are to be evaluated:
Blood eosinophils
FeNO
Eosinophils in bronchoalveolar lavage
Tissue eosinophilia (protected specimen brush sampling, endobronchial biopsy)


Diagnosis / Prognosis: Blood sampling, FeNO, bronchoalveolar lavage, bronchoscopic tissue sampling
Blood sampling (eosinophil count; eosinophilia is defined as >300/µl (or >150/µl during oral glucocorticosteroid treatment); FeNO: Measurement of fractional nitric oxide (NO) concentration in exhaled breath; Bronchoscopy: BAL: total leukocyte counts and leukocyte differential counts including eosinophils, PSB sampling: eosinophil count/100 cells, endobrochial biopsy: tissue eosinophil count/100 cells.

Summary
Brief summary
Scientific research focuses on "eosinophilic inflammation" as it seems to guide the
therapeutic regimen in patients with asthma and COPD. The primary objective of this
prospective trial is to evaluate which parameter(s) best reflects eosinophilic inflammation
by correlating tissue eosinophils (endobronchial biopsy, protected specimen brush sampling)
with FeNO, peripheral blood eosinophils, and eosinophils in the bronchoalveolar lavage of
patients with obstructive pulmonary disease.
