Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Lung Function Non-deterioration Rate [ Time Frame: Baseline and three months ]
    Lung function non deterioration rate defined by change of forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) of < 20%. FEV1, maximal amount of air forcefully exhaled in 1 second, converted to percentage of normal, calculated from a pulmonary function test (PFT) performed at baseline and three months.
