  Purpose

The main objective of the study is the exploration of the natural course of COPD and its biological background. To this end, active workers without COPD and workers in functional classes GOLD 0-III are investigated by a combined clinical and molecular approach. The study has been designed as a prospective, intraindividual pilot in 160 male or female volunteers of the greater Vienna Area over a period of three years for each individual volunteer.
