In brief: No

At this time there is no cure.
Lung transplant can be done and COPD will not return in the transplanted lung. If you have Alpha one antitrypsin deficiency you can give a patient back the missing enzyme through intravenous infusions. Otherwise smoking cessation is your best primary prevention.
