Asthma Clinical Trials

 

Not Enrolling for Asthma

At this time, we are not enrolling for this medical condition. Once we have a new asthma clinical trial open at our clinic, we will update this page and let you know.

Summary

Do you have severe and uncontrolled Asthma? This disease can begin at any age and unfortunately there is still no cure for it. Studies have shown that asthma tends to run in families, but there are also environmental factors which can trigger symptoms. As we learn more about this disease and how best to treat it, asthma clinical trials continue to play a pivotal role.

Asthma Symptoms

The symptoms of asthma can range from mild to severe, meaning what can be just a hindrance for some can be life-threatening to others. Asthma is caused by constricting and swelling of the airways (bronchospasms), making it difficult to breathe, and producing superfluous mucus. Common indications of asthma include:

  • Coughing
  • Wheezing
  • Trouble breathing
  • Pain or tightness in the chest
