Study Overview

Research sites across the U.S. are currently enrolling participants in a trial to investigate a new treatment for adults (ages 40-85) with moderate-to-severe COPD and a history of smoking.

Volunteers are critical in helping medical researchers develop new options for patients with COPD. If you're interested in participating, complete the short online questionnaire.

TrialSpark helps to connect individuals that are looking for new treatment options with clinical research sites. If you qualify, you will have the option to schedule a brief call with a study team member to discuss your eligibility. We are here to help patients learn about what's involved in clinical trials and study participation.

How to See If You Qualify

  1. See If You May Qualify

    Complete a short (<5 min) questionnaire to see if you may be eligible for this study. The information you provide is securely stored and encrypted under HIPAA.

  2. Speak to a Nurse Enrollment Specialist

    If you may qualify, you'll schedule a ~20 min call with a nurse at a time that's convenient for you. The nurse will address your questions and confirm your possible eligibility.

  3. Schedule with the Study Doctor

    Based on the call and medical history, if you're eligible and interested in participating, you'll be connected with the research site near you for an in-person screening visit.

What to Expect If You Enroll

  1. Screening (3-5 weeks) As a potential research volunteer, you will have the opportunity to review the consent document fully to make an educated decision about whether to participate in the trial. If you consent, the study doctor will perform assessments to confirm that you are eligible to participate. Enrolled participants will be randomly assigned either the investigational treatment or the placebo.

  2. Treatment Period (52 weeks) The study medication is an injection taken every other week that potentially reduces inflammation in the lungs. To monitor safety and study progress, certain study visits will include: history and physical exam, spirometry testing, injection of study medication (Itepekimab), electrocardiogram (EKG), blood tests, and questionnaires.

  3. Follow-up (20 weeks) After treatment ends, the study doctor will continue to follow up with you. There are 3 visits during the follow-up period, including the end of study (last) visit, to thoroughly monitor and evaluate patient safety
