Struggling with Asthma?
Weather Change Making it Harder to Breathe?
Our Dallas clinic is currently enrolling for
clinical research study for ASTHMA.
WHAT IS ASTHMA: If you frequently experience shortness of breath or you hear a whistling or wheezy sound in your chest when you breathe, you may have asthma — a chronic condition that causes inflammation and narrowing of the bronchial tubes, the passageways that allow air to enter and leave the lungs. If people with asthma are exposed to a substance to which they are sensitive or a situation that changes their regular breathing patterns, the symptoms can become more severe.
Asthma symptoms affect an estimated 26 million Americans — 19 million adults and 7 million children — and are one of the leading causes of absences from work and school. Asthma often runs in families; according to the World Health Organization, about half the cases are due to genetic susceptibility and half result from environmental factors.
There are two types of asthma: Allergic (caused by exposure to an allergen) and Nonallergic (caused by stress, exercise, illnesses like a cold or the flu, or exposure to extreme weather, irritants in the air or some medications).
You may qualify if you have the following criteria:
• Be at least 18 years of age
• Frequent use of Asthma medication
Participants in this study will receive:
• Study-related investigational medications at NO COST
• Study-related medical examinations at NO COST
• May be reimbursed up to $1275 for time and travel
