CURRENT CLINICAL TRIALS

Do you suffer from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)? This clinical research study is looking at the safety and effectiveness of an investigational treatment option for people with COPD.

Would you like to take part?

As a volunteer in a research study, you’ll receive study-related medical care from the study doctor and regular follow up of your COPD to monitor the effectiveness of the care you’ll receive. The results of this research will be used to find out if the investigational medication being studied will be of benefit to others with COPD, and whether it will be made widely available to all Canadians with COPD. Study volunteers are an important part of moving medical care forward.

You may qualify to participate in this study if you:

  • Are male or female, 40 to 85 years of age (inclusive)

  • Are a current or former smoker with ≥10 pack year years of tobacco smoking history (20 cigarettes per day for 1 year = 1 pack year)

  • Have a medical record verification of 2 or more moderate-severe COPD exacerbations within the past 12 months prior to screening that were treated with systemic corticosteroids and/or hospitalization

  • Have a well-documented requirement for optimized standard of care background therapy that includes ICS plus 2 additional COPD medications for at least 3 months prior to screening

You may not qualify to participate if you:

  • Have a past history or concurrent diagnosis of asthma (childhood asthma resolved before age 18 allowed)

  • Have any other respiratory disorder that may compromise the study or your safety

  • Have pneumonia, or a COPD exacerbation within 4 weeks of your screening visit

  • Have an unstable or life threatening cardiac disease

  • Have any other condition that, in the opinion of the investigator, could jeopardize your safety during the course of the trial

 

There are other eligibility requirements that the study doctor will review. Only the study doctor can finally determine whether you are eligible to participate in the study or not.
