    I am the principal investigator at the Harbor-UCLA site. This is an exciting trial investigating a unique therapy for COPD. It uses a flexible camera (bronchoscope) instead of surgery, hence the sometimes-confusing term “minimally-invasive surgery”. I would welcome anyone interested in learning more about this trial to please contact us! Our study coordinator is Leticia Diaz and she can be reached at 310-222-8200 extension 7258.

    I would love to be considered for any of your clinical trials as it pertains to emphysema. my symptoms are there as I was a smoker most of my life but am not a smoker now.

      Thank you very much, Robert. Congratulations on getting out from under the smoking habit!

      The major limiting factor in research on therapies for emphysema is finding people willing to participate in clinical research. Please let us know if you’re located in the Los Angeles area (within driving distance of Torrance). If so, we’ll forward your message to one of our staff, who will coordinate an introductory visit to our research center.
