A 3-year cohort study which started in September 1987 investigates the effect of air pollution in adult patients with chronic obstructive airway disease.
Of 108 patients recruited during the pilot phase in 1987 only eight patients had left the study prematurely.
The most important components of the study are the daily peakflow measurements and a diary on medication and symptoms.
In a preliminary analysis the influence of medication and season has been analyzed for the period September 1988 to June 1989 for 53 patients.
In general, the reactions to seasonal changes were small.
