Anne B. Curtis, MD, Charles and Mary Bauer Professor and
chair of medicine, says patients with coronary heart disease
and heart failure should not overexert themselves while engaging in
cold-weather tasks, such as clearing snow.
University at Buffalo researchers have revealed that patients
with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) experience more
respiratory symptoms when their lungs are colonized by bacteria,
even without an acute exacerbation.
Based on their published scientific articles, two University at
Buffalo physician-scientists have been recognized as leading
investigators in their medical specialties by the global health
care information website Expertscape.
