Bibliographical note

Funding Information:
The BRR is a centralized database of patients with bronchiectasis entered at 16 sites throughout the United States sponsored and funded by the COPD Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Adult patients with a diagnosis of bronchiectasis confirmed by CT scan are eligible for inclusion. The Institutional Review Board (IRB) of each site approved the study, as did an administrative IRB for the data-collecting center (Western IRB, tracking number 20141341.) BRR methods have been previously reported. 4

FUNDING/SUPPORT: The authors acknowledge the COPD Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, who manages the Bronchiectasis and NTM Research Registry. The Registry is funded by the Richard H. Scarborough Bronchiectasis Research Fund, the Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Foundation, and the Bronchiectasis and NTM Industry Advisory Committee. It should also be noted that this work would not have been possible without the comprehensive chart reviews and recording of data by the dedicated research coordinators and PIs at each of the participating Registry sites. The COPD Foundation had no role in the development of the research.
