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 suffers from asthma, you may qualify to participate in a national clinical research study conducted by the Allergy Department at Deaconess Clinic. Participation includes all study-related exams and study medication at no cost as well as compensation for time and travel. You must be age 12 to 80 to qualify.
