American Lung Association and COPD Foundation collaborate to enhance COPD research

The American Lung Association has announced that it is partnering with the COPD Foundation to conduct research to improve the quality of life of those living with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

COPD is common among those exposed to the World Trade Center site after the terrorist attacks of 2001. Also known as emphysema, it is a chronic disease with no cure, though there are treatments.

The collaboration between the two organizations will help the researchers conducting 24 different trials around the US improve treatments and the quality of life for those with COPD.
