Clinical Studies at the FIRH

Research helps us better understand how diseases develop and progress. This knowledge is needed to find the best treatment options for our patients. People who have lung disease, as well as people who do not, may be able to take part in a research study.

There are different types of studies, for example:

— Surveys or questionnaires

— Breathing tests and/or blood tests to study measurements and markers for specific aspects or severity of the disease

— New medication being tested

With the knowledge gained from any research study, better treatments might be available in the future to all of the patients and families we serve as well as people around the world.
