MAC Lung Infection
Have you been recently/newly diagnosed with a MAC lung infection? MAC is the most common form of
nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM). NTM are bacteria commonly found in the environment. MAC can
get inside your lungs when you breathe them in and can affect certain people more than others. Most
people who come in contact with MAC do not develop an infection. However, some individuals are at a
greater risk of developing an infection called MAC lung disease. MAC lung disease is a serious condition.
If untreated, it can cause damage to the lungs.
A new study is looking for individuals with newly diagnosed MAC lung disease who may be interested in
participating in a clinical study that is evaluating a drug for potential treatment of MAC lung infections and for the
potential to improve symptoms of MAC lung infection including decreased respiratory discomfort and decreased
Your participation in the study could potentially contribute to advancements in MAC lung disease research.

LEEP Losartan Effects on Emphysema Progression
LEEP is a randomized clinical trial evaluating the effect
of Losartan in helping people
with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) with emphysema – a disease of the lungs. We
are looking for adults 40
years of age or older, current or former smokers, with COPD to join our study. The study is
conducted in different states
across the country.
Insight COPD Intervention Study In Overweight Patients with COPD
We are trying to find out if a program
proven to help people lose a modest
amount of weight and increase their physical activity will improve COPD symptoms for those with a high BMI.
To be in the study, you will
need to have COPD, high BMI, history of smoking, shortness of breath, and be 40 years or
RETHINC REdefining Therapy IN early COPD
The purpose of the RETHINC study is to determine whether
symptomatic current and former smokers
with normal lung function will benefit from the use of bronchodilator therapy currently used to treat patients
who have Chronic Obstructive
Pulmonary Disease (COPD).
