DUST ALLERGY RESEARCH STUDY

Ages 12-17 with dust allergies

Purpose of the study

Dust allergies affect about 20 million Americans. If your child is one of them, consider a local clinical research study for adolescents with dust allergies. Doctors are researching an investigative study drug taken by mouth.

If qualified for this study your child may receive at no cost:

  • Investigative allergy drug taken by mouth
  • Close monitoring of his or her allergies by your study doctor
  • Reimbursement for time and travel

After receiving the first dose of study drug at the doctor’s office under supervision, your child will be able to take the rest of their doses at home. Your child’s health will be monitored throughout his or her participation.

Eligible Participants

To qualify, your child must be between 12 and 17 years old (inclusive) and suffering with dust mite allergies for at least six months. Additional criteria will be assessed by the study doctor to determine your child’s eligibility.

This study is enrolling now. To see if your adolescent may qualify for this study, or to ask questions about potential benefits and risks, please call our staff at 1-888-PRA-TRIALS or visit www.peninsularesearch.com.

ADD-ON DRUG STUDY (KIA)

Purpose of the study
The purpose of this research study is to find out if imatinib (study medication) helps treat asthma. We are testing this medication to see if it helps reduce inflammation (swelling) in the airways when it is taken as an add-on treatment. When your airway is inflamed, your asthma can get worse. Because it is an add-on treatment, it will be given in addition to your regular asthma medications, but will not replace or change your current medications. This study involves up to 17 visits over 8 months with compensation up to $2,000.

Eligible participants

  • Men and women using a high-dose inhaled corticosteroid twice per day
  • Uncontrolled asthma
  • 18-65 years old
  • Non-smoker
  • No other major medical problems
