Understanding how COPD develops and the treatments that are available are important steps in staying healthy. At the COPDGene study we believe that getting the most information you can on lung health and COPD will help you, your friends, and your family make better healthcare decisions. On the COPDGene Study website, we guide you through the two major areas of health information. About COPD will teach you more about the prevalence, treatment, and physiology of COPD. The COPD genetics page explores how genetics may affect COPD. We encourage you to explore these chapters and keep informed on the new information and advancements made in the area of COPD research.
