Hi Folks,

I have gotten information on a new Clinical Trial.

http://www.lookingbeyondcopd.com

This clinical research study is being conducted worldwide to test a study drug versus placebo in reducing lung and heart complications. A placebo is a substance that looks similar to the study drug but contains no active medication.

This study will enroll 16,000 participants who have been diagnosed with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), and have a history or risk of heart disease, at approximately 1,100 study centers worldwide.

The study drug is a new investigational drug that combines both a long-acting beta-agonist and a corticosteroid in a single inhaler in order to relax the airways in the lung, helping to make breathing easier. The study drug has not yet been approved for use, which is why it is being studied.

Study participants must meet the following criteria*
* Have been diagnosed with COPD, emphysema or chronic bronchitis
* Have heart disease or are at risk for heart disease
* Are 40 to 80 years old
* Are currently a smoker or have smoked in the past
