Abstract

Progressive lung function decline in patients with asthma may result in poorer control and worsening quality of life. Asthma exacerbations are thought to contribute to this decline. However, evidence is mixed and limited to a few mainly small, post-hoc studies. This longitudinal study aimed to assess the association between exacerbation burden and long-term lung function decline in a broad asthma patient population
