Child with Asthma?
Research studies are enrolling now.
Those who qualify may receive*:
- Payment up to $900, which varies by study
- Study-related care at no cost from local doctors
- Study medication at no cost
If preferred, to help keep you and your child safe, most study visits can be completed in-home using our home health nurses or visiting study staff (in addition to telemedicine calls and video chats).
COVID-19 update — we remain open.
For the safety of both staff and patients, we require that our research sites are COVID-19 SMART facilities. That means they use best practices to reduce virus exposure and are dedicated to ensuring they remain open and available for the research of investigational medications.
COVID-19 SMART steps we are taking to ensure safety include:
- Greatly increased availability of video office visits
- Ensuring social distancing measures are taken in all waiting areas
- Continuing the practice of cleaning and disinfecting exams rooms thoroughly between every patient visit
- Appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) for all staff members at our health clinics
About participating in a clinical trial for pediatric asthma. Watch & Learn
If you have a child that suffers from asthma, you may find it hard to “exhale” and just relax. Maybe they are taking asthma medication, yet still have difficulty breathing or suffer from attacks that quickly turn into medical emergencies.
As you may know, signs and symptoms that a child’s asthma may not be well-controlled can include:
- Wheezing or coughing (especially at night)
- Shortness of breath
- Tightness, pain or pressure in the chest
Right now, local research studies are evaluating asthma medications not available from your regular doctor and are looking for children to participate. If your child has asthma—especially asthma that’s not well-controlled—they may be eligible.
Take the next step to see if they may qualify for local research studies for children with Asthma. Don’t delay — space is limited!
