Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) invites applications for research grants to identify novel biomarkers of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). COPD is a complex group of conditions associated with progressive airway obstruction for which no disease-modifying therapy is currently known. The purpose of this request for applications (RFA) is to promote the identification and characterization of biomarkers that might eventually be useful for studies of COPD pathogenesis, diagnosis, therapeutic stratification of patients, or testing of potential drug treatments. Such biomarkers might reflect the presence or severity of COPD, the rate of disease progression, or exacerbations of the disease. A variety of techniques might be employed, ranging from chemical assays of exhaled air condensate, to proteomic analysis of blood, to functional imaging of lungs by positron emission tomography. The focus of this RFA is on novel biomarkers for COPD that can be determined by minimally invasive means.
