Further studies are required with this drug but initial research has shown a 30 per cent quit rate with bupropion alone and a 35 per cent quit rate when combined with nicotine replacement. Other drugs that have been investigated in this context are nortryptyline and clonidine. There are very little data on these last two drugs. POLLUTION When the subject of air pollution is raised it is natural to think of outdoor pollution. The subject conjures up smoke-stack industries and coal-fired heating.
It is nearly four decades since Acts of Parliament caused areas of British cities to be declared ‘smokeless zones’ and two decades since draconian cuts in coal production. Whatever one feels about the social upheavals caused by the closure of the coal mines, the improvement in air quality is hard to deny. One of the main benefactors of this has been the miners themselves. The reassessment of coal mining and its associated air pollution has led to a new appreciation of the risk to ex-coal miners and there is currently a programme of spirometry in this group of individuals to calculate the number of sufferers.
Some patients with relatively bad spirometry (with FEV1 less than 30 per cent of predicted) perform reasonably well but in others relatively mild impairment is associated with high levels of symptoms. It is with this in mind that guidelines which define the disease entirely in terms of spirometry must be interpreted. The GOLD guidelines and the forthcoming American Thoracic Society (ATS)/European Respiratory Society (ERS) guidelines use 50 per cent and 30 per cent as boundaries for recommendations on treatment.
