COPD Study Information

Posted: Wednesday, June 9th, 2010 at 6:45 am

A research group is looking for area residents to take part in a study on lung disease and the genes passed down that predispose people to it. U of I Hospital Research Coordinator Kim Sprenger says they are looking for current and former smokers, who have or don’t have lung disease. The study will look at if smoking accelerates the development of lung disease in someone who is predisposed. Sprenger says they’re having an informative meeting at the Washington Public Library tomorrow evening from 6-8 PM.
