Asthma: A Study in Prognosis of 1,000 Patients

  • A. G. Ogilvie
Conference paper


It is not easy to find adequate information about the prognosis in asthma. The condition is notoriously liable to spontaneous variation, the disease is not always clearly defined, and most studies have been small, only covering short periods. In this paper I report a follow-up of 1,000 patients with asthma seen by me over a period of more than 25 years at the Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle.
