The PILLAR Study: A Clinical Trial for Patients Diagnosed with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) with an Inhaled Maintenance Triple Therapy.

<b>Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) - Multiple Locations in the US</b>

Over 65 million people globally have moderate to severe Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). COPD is a chronic inflammatory lung disease that causes obstructed airflow from the lungs. Symptoms include breathing difficulty, coughing, mucus (sputum) production, and wheezing.

Why is the PILLAR study being done?

Although maintenance therapies have improved the lives of patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), some individuals on maintenance triple therapy for COPD still have symptoms or experience COPD exacerbations, which can result in a hospital admission. More treatment options are needed to address this issue.

The PILLAR study is being conducted to investigate the safety, tolerability, and effectiveness of a new investigational add-on medication that may reduce airway inflammation and improve COPD symptoms in people on maintenance triple therapy.

Can I qualify for the PILLAR study?

Clinical trials are medical research studies designed to test the safety and/or effectiveness of new investigational drugs, devices, or treatments in humans. These studies are conducted worldwide for a range of conditions and illnesses. Learn more about clinical research and participating in a study at About Clinical Trials.
