Non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis (NCFBE) is a chronic pulmonary disease that can compromise lung function and patient quality of life. The diagnosis of NCFBE is frequently missed, with the hallmark symptom of chronic cough being overlooked by healthcare professionals or attributed to other factors.
In this CME activity, you will learn about the vicious vortex of NCFBE that includes infection, inflammation, and damaged airways. Pulmonary experts share clinical pearls for improving your NCFBE diagnostic and therapeutic skills. Hear first-hand from an experienced patient with NCFBE who describes his personal journey and provides impactful advice for healthcare professionals. Do not miss this opportunity to explore exciting novel emerging treatment strategies for NCFBE, including targeting the activation of neutrophil serine proteases and neutrophilic inflammation.
