Heymann Peter, W

Volunteers (ages 18 – 40 years old) are needed to screen for a study about asthma and the common cold. The ultimate goal of this research is to improve asthma care. The purpose of screening is to determine eligibility for the study about asthma and the common cold. Screening is ongoing and involves 2 visits. Volunteers will be compensated $40 for the first screening visit and $60 for the second. • SCREENING VISIT 1 involves a blood draw and the completion of a questionnaire. • SCREENING VISIT 2 involves lung function testing to verify asthma (called a methacholine challenge test), an allergy evaluation and another blood draw. Results of the allergy evaluation and lung function testing will be shared with the participants during the visit. Based on the results, those who qualify can enroll in a 12 week study about asthma and the common cold. Reimbursement for this next study (IRB HSR # 14427) will be $1870.00 for completing the study.
