Pitt+Me Volunteer for Asthma – AIR (Asthma Institute Research Registry) - Children with Asthma


STUDY BASICS

Does your child have asthma? Is your child between the ages of 12-17? If so, your child may be able to take part in the Asthma Institute Research Registry to help researchers learn more about asthma. Compensation provided.


STUDY PURPOSE

Asthma – which affects more than 25 million people in the United states -- is a chronic lung disease that that causes swelling and inflammation in the airways, making it hard to breathe. Researchers would like to better understand asthma by enrolling people with asthma into the Asthma Institute Research Registry. A research registry is a list of individuals who agree to allow researchers to review and study their medical records, and allow researchers to contact them about future research study opportunities. Many advancements in medicine have resulted from research involving the collection and analysis of the medical record information of patients with a certain disease or condition.


COULD THIS STUDY BE RIGHT FOR YOUR CHILD?

•    Ages 12-17
•    Diagnosed with asthma


WHAT PARTICIPANTS CAN EXPECT

Participation involves 1 visit that lasts about 1.5 hours. Study procedures include a blood draw, breathing tests, questions about medical history, and agreeing to have your child’s medical record information added to the research registry so that researchers may learn more about asthma.
Once your child is enrolled in the study, you may be contacted for future research studies for which your child may qualify.
