Do You Have Asthma?
Asthma causes swelling and inflammation in the airways that lead to your lungs. When asthma flares up, the airways tighten and become narrower. This keeps the air from passing through easily and makes it hard for you to breathe. The swelling and inflammation in your airways can lead to permanent changes in your airways and harm your lungs. Symptoms of asthma can be mild or severe and may include, wheezing, coughing, and chest tightness.
If you or someone you know is suffering with the symptoms of asthma, you may qualify for a national clinical research study conducted by the Allergy Department at Deaconess Clinic. Participation includes study-related physical evaluation and investigational study medication at no cost; and compensation for participation. You must be at least 12 years of age to qualify.
Health insurance is not required for participation
