The trial will enroll individuals with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The primary design will be a randomized double-blind 6-sequence, 3-period, 3-treatment sequential crossover trial for which the investigators will randomize participants to receive 81mg, 162mg, and 325mg aspirin in one of six pre-specified sequences with a 14-day washout period between doses. Participants will have three follow-up visits after randomization.

The investigator will study the origin of fungal translocation in HIV, its relationship to the mycobiome, and its relationship to lung function and inflammation. Supported by the preliminary data and published studies, this project is based on the premise that circulating BDG derived from microbial translocation stimulates inflammation and worsens lung function in PWH.

This is a randomized controlled trial of a food delivery dietary intervention targeting increased omega-3 intake to determine whether dietary modifications can improve Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) outcomes and attenuate the adverse effects of particulate matter on respiratory health.

This is a pilot study on the impact of switching from cigarettes to Electronic Cigarettes (EC) on disease-related clinical symptoms and biomarkers of harm in smokers with preexisting Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). The researchers hypothesize that the smokers who switch to EC completely or significantly will experience reduced COPD symptoms, risks of exacerbations, and decreased levels of oxidative stress and inflammation.

The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy and safety of a real time video telehealth pulmonary rehabilitation intervention with standard of care in patients hospitalized for an exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) to determine the impact on hospital readmissions and respiratory morbidity, and to investigate the cost-effectiveness of the intervention.

This study is being done to test the comparative effectiveness of participating in a Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program at home using new technology and health coaching following dismissal from the hospital compared to the referral to a center based pulmonary rehabilitation that may include the choice of center based or telehealth.

This project will compare the effectiveness of two novel strategies - one involving video narratives of other patients telling their story of how they overcame challenges and completed PR, the other involving telephonic peer coaching with an individual with lived experience - to enhanced usual care, and to each other, at increasing patient participation in PR after an exacerbation.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States. Current treatments for COPD focus on inhaler therapies that do not address manifestations of the disease on other organ systems. Platelets, which are small blood cells that typically help with clotting, are also involved in generalized inflammation and dysfunctionality of immune cells when these cells become activated.
