Summary

Emphysema is a type of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and a major cause of death. Studies suggest that emphysema is more common in HIV positive people (HIV+) compared to HIV negative (HIV-) people. The purpose of this research study is to determine whether emphysema in HIV+ patients is clinically and biologically different compared to emphysema in those without HIV.
