Condition chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
Treatment roflumilast
Phase phase 4
Sponsor University of Pittsburgh
Start date February 2013
End date June 2016
Trial size 26 participants
Trial identifier NCT01745848, PRO12060615


Our primary hypothesis is that Roflumilast (500 μcg, once daily) will significantly decrease surrogate markers of bone metabolism and early cardiovascular disease in individuals with moderate to severe airflow obstruction and a chronic bronchitis phenotype.
