Patients with severe COPD benefit from a daily dose of morphine

The daily use of low-dose morphine tablets by patients with a severe form of the lung disease COPD has a positive effect on quality of life, and has no negative side effects. These are the findings of a recent study by Cindy van den Berg-Verberkt and Dr Daisy Janssen of the Ciro knowledge centre and Maastricht University (UM). The results were published yesterday in the medical journal JAMA Internal Medicine.
