The COPD Biomarkers Qualification Consortium (CBQC) is a partnership between the COPD Foundation, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the pharmaceutical industry developed in part to demonstrate that individual biomarkers can be used effectively in the drug development process. This paper presents the process and outcomes of a project seeking approval of fibrinogen, a measure of inflammation, as a biomarker for use in clinical COPD trials.
