Summary
Brief summary
This study will use microarray analysis to investigate the effects of statins, antioxidant nutrients and omega-3 fatty acids (fish oil) in COPD. COPD is a condition that involves inflammation of the airways that can cause scarring and airflow limitation of the lung, with the primary cause being cigarette smoking. Statins are drugs which are usually used to lower cholesterol levels but are also known to have anti-inflammatory and possible antioxidant effects. Omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants have also been found to be useful in reducing inflammation.
Hypothesis: Statins, antioxidants and fish oil supplements may have different and potentially complementary effects, on genes involved in inflammatory pathways. The combined use of these interventions may provide a superior approach to reducing inflammation and slowing deterioration of lung function in ex-smokers with obstructive airway disease.
