Unsolved problems in Pulmonology

Contemporary medicine requires from pulmonologist knowledge in the field of related disciplines (radiodiagnosis, oncology, thoracic surgery, clinical pharmacology, cardiology, and others). Currently, the next issues are not adequately reflected: COPD and associated diseases (CVD, osteoporosis, diabetes); value of COPD radiation diagnostics; COPD and lung cancer; surgical treatment of COPD.

In our opinion, also, topical problems are the issues regarding population drug coverage in the Russian Federation, namely: preferential provision of medicines, not specified in standards and trade names; issues of equivalence of original and generic drugs, and criteria of their interchangeability.
