Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) describes a group of lung diseases that make it difficult to breathe. More than 12 million cases have been diagnosed, and likely millions more have not yet been identified.
If you suffer from COPD, you might qualify to volunteer for a clinical trial. While there is no cure for COPD, research has uncovered treatment options to make patients more comfortable or even slow the progression of the disease.
By participating in a clinical trial you can gain access to treatment methods and medications that are not yet available to the general market. Research obtained from those trials might improve your health outlook, or that of someone you care about. Clinical trials are a critical piece of medical research and without the medical community would be much less able to help those who suffer or are at risk of disease.
Columbus Clinical Research in Columbus, Ohio is currently conducting a wide array of clinical studies targeted towards certain conditions. You may be eligible to participate in one of our COPD clinical trials and contribute to the development and approval of a new drug or treatment. As a participant, there is no cost to you at any point during the study. Browse our clinical trials being conducted now to find the study best suited for you.
