Do you have asthma?
This clinical research study is looking at the safety and effectiveness of an investigational treatment option for people with asthma.
Would you like to take part?
As a volunteer in a research study, you’ll receive personal medical care from the study doctor and regular follow up of your asthma to monitor the effectiveness of the care you’ll receive. The results of this research will be used to find out if the experimental medication being studied will be of benefit to others with asthma or not, and whether or not it will be made widely available to all Canadians with asthma. Study volunteers are an important part of moving medical care forward.
