Functional CT Assessment of Pulmonary Arterial Dysfunction in Smoking Associated Emphysema

Imaging-based metrics have recently played a central role in the quest to identify chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) phenotypes, serving to establish homogeneous sub-populations to aid in genotyping, therapeutic targeting and design and outcomes assessment. Recent findings in both animals and humans have lead us to believe that CT derived ...


Losartan Effects on Emphysema Progression

This is a pragmatic trial designed to test if a treatment, losartan, may decrease the progression of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Losartan is an angiotensin receptor blocking agent, commonly used as an antihypertensive agent, which has been shown to alter cardiac remodeling after myocardial infarction and renovascular remodeling in ...


Smoking Cessation and Functional CT Assessment

The purpose of this research study is to find out if smoking cessation combined with sildenafil, an FDA approved drug for pulmonary hypertension, will decrease inflammation in the lung. Even if a smoker stops smoking, the harmful effects caused by previous smoking may recruit inflammatory cells to those affected areas, ...
