USCC Releases Statement of Principles in Response to Philip Morris International’s Acquisition of Respiratory Health Companies

The U.S. COPD Coalition (USCC) has released a “Statement of Principles” pertaining to the recent acquisition by cigarette maker Phillip Morris International of Vectura Group plc, a British company that manufactures inhalers for pharmaceutical manufacturers.

“I think it’s common sense that organizations devoted to promoting safe and effective treatment of persons with pulmonary diseases are not in support of a tobacco company acquiring a manufacture of inhalers which are used in the delivery of medication’s proven effective in treating a variety of lung diseases and conditions”, stated USCC Chair Sam P. Giordano, MBA, RRT, FAARC in announcing the release of the statement. “I encourage all of you to undertake efforts to adopt similar statements within your organizations and advocacy groups and use it to educate your family, friends, and allies.”

Get Tested for COPD: Your Lungs Will Thank You

If you’re often short of breath during everyday activities, your chest feels tight, or you cough a lot, you may be chalking it up to getting older, having allergies, or being a smoker (now or in the past). Fortunately, there’s a way to know whether something more may be at play. Consider getting a lung function test to find out if you have a serious condition called chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD. Knowing the cause of your cough and breathing problems will not only help you manage your symptoms—it’ll help you feel better, too.
