The first results of the EMBARC registry were announced at the beginning of October at the ERS congress in Amsterdam. Thanks to the dedication of all of the clinicians, nurses and allied health professionals participating in the project we are delighted to announce that EMBARC has already exceeded its target for recruitment in 2015. The study was aiming to achieve 1000 patients by April 2016, but has now reached 1283 in just 6 months of operation. This is a terrific result and is a tribute to the great enthusiasm and dedication of all of the participants in the project.

Congratulations to all!

The Registry remains open for recruitment as we push towards the target of 10,000 patients recruited by March 2020
