The European Respiratory Society’s (ERS) journals publish respiratory research and policy documents of the highest quality, offering a platform for the exchange and promotion of scientific knowledge. This new series entitled “Current developments and future directions” aims to critically summarize only some of the most recent, high-quality studies published in the ERS journals, focusing on different disciplines of respiratory medicine. In this first article, focusing on Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), the third leading cause of death globally, we summarize novel research highlights focusing on the disease’s underlying mechanisms, epidemiology, and management, with the aim to inform and inspire respiratory clinicians and researchers.
