Sentara begins international trial -- open at only 24 US locations
Date:9/25/2008

odard is hoping for. The 61-year-old Suffolk resident is being evaluated Tuesday, September 22 at Sentara to begin the enrollment process.

"I don't look sick," says Woodard. "You wouldn't know any better until you saw me exercise," continues Woodard who ran 35 miles each week up until about 10 years ago. Woodard retired a year ago because of his condition. "I still play golf, but I have to bring my oxygen with me," he says.

"Research like this gives new hope of a longer-term solution for more people. Transplant is not a practical option for a lot of people with severe emphysema," says Dr. Carolyn Fruci, pulmonologist and critical care specialist involved in the study. "What's exciting is the possibility of patients regaining some of the everyday freedoms lost to this disease," Fruci continues.

Transplant, one of the only treatments today for patients with severe emphysema, is not plausible for every patient. Participation in this trial does not prevent patients from being considered for lung transplantation at a later time.

For Woodard, who has been coping with COPD for the last 10 years, participating in this research offers hope. "I'm up for most anything. Naturally if there's any benefitto me or anybody elsethat would be wonderful," say Woodard, who is being evaluated for participation in the trial.
