Does taking statins reduce frequency of flare-ups?

Link to organisation:

Full description:

We are designing a study to find out whether people with COPD who take statins have fewer flare-ups than those who do not. The study will be based on a pre-existing database of GP patient records. If you have COPD or care for someone with COPD we would like you to help us. We want to talk about your personal experience of flare-ups and experience of using statins (if any) so that we can better understand the data that we have. We would like to telephone you, the call will last about 30 minutes.
