Asthma Research Study

Severe Asthma Pioglitazone Clinical Trial

Patients with severe asthma may be eligible to participate in a study at the NIH Clinical Research Center. The purpose of this study is to determine if a widely used agent for diabetes can improve asthma. Eligible patients will receive a comprehensive evaluation at the Clinical Research Center in Bethesda, Maryland. There is no cost for participating in the study.

Asthma Research Study

Sample Collections from the Airways of Asthmatic Patients

Patients with asthma may be able to participate in a sample collection study at the NIH Clinical Center. This study involves a procedure called a fiberoptic bronchoscopy in which cells and fluids are collected from the airways using a pencil-thin tube that is passed into the lungs. The purpose of this research is to identify factors that may cause airway inflammation in patients with asthma.
Eligible patients will receive a comprehensive evaluation at the NIH Clinical Research Center in Bethesda, Maryland. There is no cost to you for the medical evaluation. You will receive monetary compensation for participating in the study.
