Abstract

Bilirubin has been reported to be associated with respiratory diseases due to its antioxidant action. We aimed to evaluate the relationship between serum bilirubin concentration and annual lung function decline in the Korean general population. The study included 7986 subjects aged 40-69 years from the Ansung-Ansan cohort database I (2001-2002)-III (2005-2006). We analyzed the relationships between serum bilirubin level and forced expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV1), forced vital capacity (FVC), FEV1/FVC, and mean forced expiratory flow between 25 and 75% of FVC (FEF25-75%) at baseline, as well as the annual average changes in these lung parameters. The FEV1, FVC, and FEF25-75% were significantly associated with serum bilirubin levels after adjustment for age, sex, body mass index (BMI), and smoking status (all P < 0.001). When stratified according to smoking status, these relationships were significant in never-smokers. Additionally, serum bilirubin level was negatively associated with the annual decline in FEV1 and FVC, and positively associated with the annual decline in FEV1/FVC after adjustment for age, sex, BMI, baseline lung function, and smoking status (all P < 0.001). We found significant associations of serum bilirubin levels with FEV1, FVC, and FEF25-75% in the general population, especially in never-smokers. Moreover, serum bilirubin levels were related with the annual decline in FEV1, FVC, and FEV1/FVC ratio.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 23 May 2018.
All research outputs
#10,355,279
of 12,979,316 outputs
Outputs from Respiratory Research
#1,376
of 1,533 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#203,166
of 271,223 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Respiratory Research
#29
of 30 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,979,316 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,533 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 5.1. This one is in the 2nd percentile – i.e., 2% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 271,223 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 13th percentile – i.e., 13% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 30 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
