I met w/the clinic this morning for the first of 5 visits.
Today, signing the consent formssss.
Next visit, some preliminary med tests, and confirming if I will be part of the study. For the next month I'll be on Symbicort. Followed by a 24 hour session.
3rd visit I'll either be in the Symbicort or Trelogy tract. Followed by another 24 hour session.
You get 3 inhalers in either tract, 1-the active med, 2 & 3 plecebos, and take each one. Apparently that's to disguise the actual medication.
As part of the study you can optionally let them draw blood as part of a long term genetic assessement of COPD patients. I never see any of those results, they are used for future treatments and research. Yes, I will agree to that.
Should be an intrestening few months.
