COPD PPRN: Why you should enroll
Are you looking for a way to make a difference and let your voice be heard? The COPD Patient-Powered Research Network (COPD PPRN) is an opportunity to join a community of individuals who want to revolutionize COPD research. The COPD PPRN will be the largest network of patients affected by Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) ever assembled.
Despite being the 3rd leading cause of death, according to clinicaltrials.gov, there are only 780 ongoing trials for COPD. This pales in comparison to the over 41,000 trials taking place in cancer research.

Enroll in the COPD PPRN
The COPD Patient-Powered Research Network will be a research registry of over 75,000 individuals with COPD who have agreed to share their health information and the impact the disease has on their lives. Operated and governed by groups of patients and their partners, the information is kept in a secure database to be used for research – ultimately leading to a deeper understanding of the disease.
It is estimated that more than 300 million individuals worldwide have COPD, but there is no resource to connect COPD researchers and people interested in participating in COPD research. By joining the COPD PPRN, you will enable this registry to serve as a clinical research resource for researchers and people who want to participate in COPD research.
