Clinical Trials

Preventing COPD Flare-Ups with Beta Blockers

Our researchers are seeking individuals ages 40 to 85 with emphysema, chronic bronchitis and other forms of COPD for a clinical trial to determine if a medication (Metoprolol) can reduce flare-ups. The trials will also study the effects of beta blockers on shortness of breath, lung function and ability to exercise. Learn more.
