The purpose

COPD is an inflammatory disease characterized by enhanced chronic airway and lung inflammatory responses to noxious agents (e.g. smoke, pollutants) and progressive airflow limitation. In COPD patients there is a spillover of peripheral lung inflammation into systemic circulation resulting in increased level of various inflammatory markers such as: IL-1β, IL-6, IL-8, and TNF-α. Diagnosis, now, is based on clinical evaluation and spirometry test and COPD treatment includes the use of LABA, LAMA and corticosteroids. To data no plasmatic marker able to identify the stage of COPD and the response to the treatment have been documented . The aim of this study is to evaluate in COPD patients the role of microRNA as predictive biomarker, of the disease in order to have a signature of miRs typically of COPD
