COPD Activity: SERT, Cytokine, And Depression Study
The purpose of the CASCADE study is to look at how genes and levels of certain inflammatory chemicals are related to depression in people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
We are also looking at how the genes, chemicals, and depression are related to your symptoms, quality of life, and functioning.
You do not need to have depression to be eligible for the study.
The COPD Activity: SERT, Cytokine, And Depression Study (CASCADE) is being conducted by researchers at the University of Washington and Department of Veteran’s Affairs.
