In brief: No...

Empysema, a form of copd, is an incurable, slowly progressive disease.
There are effective treatments but no cure. Smoking cessation can prevent it from developing and slow progression, if already present.

In brief: No

Emphysema is a chronic lung disorder that has multiple cause.
By the far the most common cause is smoking. While there is no cure for emphysema, disease progression can be minimized by smoking cessation.

In brief: No

There is no cure for emphysema, once the damage is done it is not reversible, the only "cure" in late stage emphysema is lung transplant.
