Lung Inflammation is characterized by COPD, which intensifies with disease progression Lung or bronchial biopsies and induced sputum have shown evidence of lung inflammation in all cigarette smokers. However, it appears that an enhanced or abnormal inflammatory response to inhaled particles or gases, beyond the normal protective inflammatory response in the lungs, is a characteristic feature of COPD and has the potential to produce lung injury.
