Ragweed in Children

Updated on 8 November 2020


Ragweed in Children


Ragweed pollen is one of the most common inhaled allergens in North America and affects 40% of children. This study will evaluate an investigational pill. The only other immunotherapy has been allergy injections at a doctor’s office. The advantage of the pill is it can be administered under medical supervision the first time and then self-administered.

This study could be up to 28 weeks long with the potential of up to 7 visits. Study medication and a basic health assessment of each participant will be provided at no cost. Compensation for volunteer time and travel will be available up to $400.

About Ragweed Allergy

Ragweed is a weed that can grow almost anywhere but especially in the east and midwest of the United States. From August to November, ragweed blooms and releases pollen—a very fine powder also made by trees, grasses, and flowers. In many areas of the country, ragweed pollen levels are highest in mid-September. When ragweed pollen in the air enters the nose and throat of people who are allergic to that pollen, it can cause allergy and asthma symptoms.
