Join our clinical research study for asthmatics who have experienced a serious asthma episode in the past year
We are seeking study volunteers at least 12 years of age who have required treatment with systemic corticosteroids (tablets, suspension or injection) OR who have been hospitalized for 24 hours or more due to a worsening of asthma within the past year.
This clinical study is being undertaken with the purpose of comparing the incidence of serious asthma outcomes in study participants treated during the study primarily with a combination of inhaled steroid and a long-acting beta-agonist (bronchodilator*) medication and those treated primarily with an inhaled steroid medication alone. A serious asthma outcome includes asthma-related hospitalization, intubation (the insertion of a breathing tube), and death.
* A medication that relaxes the involuntary muscles of the airways in the body. When these muscles are tightened, they constrict airflow; when relaxed, they allow the air to move more freely through the airways.
