Bisoprolol in COPD study

BICS is a research study into the treatment of COPD. In the BICS study we are trying to find out if flare-ups of COPD can be prevented by using a tablet called bisoprolol. Bisoprolol is a beta-blocker that has been widely used for a long time to treat heart problems, but it now seems that bisoprolol might also reduce flare ups of COPD regardless of heart problems.
