COPD Clinical Study
Current Clinical Studies
Welcome to the dedicated COPD research page at Elite Clinical Studies. If you’re among the many individuals grappling with the challenges of COPD, we’re committed to providing you with profound insights into this condition and illuminating how our studies are striving for enhanced treatments and resolutions.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) stands as a prevalent respiratory ailment. This condition arises when the airways become inflamed and obstructed, leading to symptoms like breathlessness, chronic cough, wheezing, and chest tightness. While occasional respiratory discomfort is expected, recurrent or severe instances of COPD can substantially curtail your daily life and overall wellness.
Signs of COPD
Breathlessness: An ongoing sensation of breath shortage during activities.
Chronic Cough: Persistent cough that may produce mucus.
Wheezing: High-pitched whistling sound when breathing.
Chest Tightness: A feeling of pressure or constriction in the chest area.
Our Approach to COPD Research
At Elite Clinical Studies, we acknowledge the profound influence that COPD can exert on your quality of existence. Our studies and clinical trials are concentrated on:
Cutting-Edge Interventions: We delve into novel and progressive intervention possibilities aimed at mitigating COPD symptoms, diminishing the recurrence and intensity of episodes, and augmenting overall respiratory well-being.
Lifestyle and Habit Adjustments: Our investigations explore the role of lifestyle alterations, exercise, and habit adjustments in ameliorating COPD symptoms and averting their reoccurrence.
Tailored Attention: We comprehend the diverse spectrum of COPD experiences. Our specialists deliver individualized care to address distinct needs and optimize treatment blueprints.

By enrolling in our COPD clinical trials, you become an active contributor to the evolution of medical understanding and the shaping of COPD management strategies. Whether you’re seeking alleviation from persistent symptoms or aspire to enrich scientific comprehension, your involvement has the potential to effectuate a meaningful transformation.
Current Clinical Studies
Type I or Type II Diabetes
Type I and Type II diabetes are both chronic metabolic disorders characterized by high blood sugar levels. Type I diabetes, often diagnosed in childhood or adolescence, on the other hand, Type II diabetes, typically diagnosed in adulthood.
Lipoprotein (a), often abbreviated as Lp(a), is a type of lipoprotein particle that circulates in the blood. Elevated levels of Lp(a) in the blood have been associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular diseases, including heart attack and stroke.
Active Rotator Cuff Tendinopathy
Active rotator cuff tendinopathy refers to a condition characterized by inflammation and degeneration of the tendons in the rotator cuff muscles of the shoulder. It commonly occurs as a result of repetitive overhead activities or age-related wear and tear.
Acid reflux, also known as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), is a condition characterized by the backflow of stomach acid into the esophagus. This occurs when the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), a muscular ring that separates the stomach from the esophagus, weakens or relaxes inappropriately.
Heartburn is a common symptom of acid reflux, characterized by a burning sensation in the chest or throat. It occurs when stomach acid flows back into the esophagus, causing irritation and discomfort.
Atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema, is a chronic inflammatory skin condition characterized by dry, itchy, and red patches on the skin. It commonly affects individuals with a personal or family history of allergies, asthma, or hay fever.
Migraines are a neurological condition characterized by recurring episodes of severe headaches. They typically cause throbbing or pulsating pain, often on one side of the head, and can be accompanied by other symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound, and visual disturbances.
Asthma is a chronic respiratory condition characterized by inflammation and narrowing of the airways, leading to recurrent episodes of wheezing, coughing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath. It is a condition that can range from mild to severe, and its symptoms can vary in frequency and intensity from person to person.
Erosive esophagitis is a condition characterized by inflammation and damage to the lining of the esophagus. It is commonly caused by gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), where stomach acid flows back into the esophagus, leading to irritation and erosion of the tissue.
COPD, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, is a progressive lung disease characterized by persistent airflow limitation. It is often caused by long-term exposure to irritants such as cigarette smoke, air pollution, and occupational hazards.
COPD with Exacerbations
COPD with exacerbations refers to the worsening of symptoms and a sudden increase in the severity of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Exacerbations can be triggered by various factors, such as respiratory infections, exposure to irritants, changes in weather, or failure to adhere to treatment plans.
MACE stands for Major Adverse Cardiovascular Events. It is a term used to describe a group of serious cardiovascular events that can have significant health implications. MACE typically includes events such as heart attack, stroke, cardiovascular death, and the need for coronary revascularization procedures like angioplasty or bypass surgery.
Major depression, also known as clinical depression or major depressive disorder, is a mental health condition characterized by persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and a loss of interest or pleasure in activities. It is more than just feeling down or having a “bad day.”
Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, is a common medical condition characterized by elevated pressure in the arteries. It is often considered a silent or asymptomatic condition, but it can have serious health implications if left untreated.
Obesity w/Type II Diabetes
Obesity and Type II diabetes often go hand in hand and can have a significant impact on an individual’s health. Obesity is defined as having excess body fat, typically resulting from an imbalance between calorie intake and expenditure.
Obesity w/Cardio Vascular Disease
Obesity is a significant risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD), which refers to a group of conditions affecting the heart and blood vessels. Excess body weight, particularly central obesity (excess fat around the abdomen), contributes to various mechanisms that increase the risk of CVD.
OA of the Knee
Osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee is a degenerative joint disease that affects the knee joint. It occurs when the cartilage, which acts as a cushion between the bones, gradually wears away, leading to friction and damage to the joint.
GERD, which stands for gastroesophageal reflux disease, is a chronic digestive disorder characterized by the backflow of stomach acid into the esophagus. It occurs when the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), a muscular ring that separates the stomach from the esophagus, becomes weak or relaxes inappropriately.
