SOURCE Study for Younger Smokers


Trial Objective

SOURCE Study for Younger SmokersLung doctors with a national research study called SOURCE want to understand how cigarette smoke affects the lungs of smokers ages 30-55. The study is designed to determine how early lung damage occurs and why some smokers develop chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD, years later. Participants in the study will complete a health questionnaire and receive breathing tests, blood work and CT scans of the lungs.
