Asthma is a chronic disease that affects your airways. Your airways are tubes that carry air in and out of your lungs. If you have asthma, the inside walls of your airways become sore and swollen. That makes them very sensitive, and they may react strongly to things that you are allergic to or find irritating. When your airways react, they get narrower and your lungs get less air.
Do you experience poorly controlled asthma?
This clinical research study is looking at the safety and effectiveness of an investigational treatment option for people who have uncontrolled asthma.
Would you like to take part?
As a volunteer in a research study, you will receive study related medical care from the study doctor. The results of this research will be used to find out if the experimental medication/device being studied will be of benefit to other Canadians with asthma or not. Study volunteers are an important part of moving medical care forward.
You may qualify to participate in this study if you:
- Are male or female over the age of 12 years, or between the ages of 12 and 17 supported by a parent or guardian
- Have been diagnosed with asthma for at least 6 months prior to your screening visit
You may not qualify to participate if you:
- Have a history of lactose or milk sensitivity
- Have a history or current diagnosis of a clinically significant cardiovascular condition
- Are a pregnant female or plan to become pregnant during the duration of the study
- Are an active smoker or have been actively smoking within the past 6 months
There are other eligibility requirements that the study doctor will review. Only the study doctor can finally determine whether you are eligible to participate in the study or not.
