🩺 💰 Opportunity for Clinical Trial Monoclonal Antibodies in COPD 💰 🩺

People living with moderate–to–severe COPD deserve to breathe better. That’s why a new clinical trial is testing an investigational study drug with the aim of reducing symptom flare–ups. Volunteers with COPD who have had three exacerbations in the past year are needed to participate in this clinical research program. Individuals living with COPD must:
  • Be 40–85 years of age.
  • Be a current or former smoker living with COPD.

  • Have a history of moderate–to–very severe COPD.
  • Have had three or more ‘flare–ups’ of your COPD symptoms in the last year that required steroid treatment or emergency medical attention.
  • Have used multiple types of medications to treat your COPD in the past three months (this may be with one or more inhalers).
  • Not have an asthma diagnosis.
