Severe Asthma Clinical Trials

Various agencies and research organizations have undertaken clinical trials to better understand what causes severe asthma, its long term effects, and how it should be treated. Check out these clinical trials and clinical trials sites to see if you qualify for participation.

  1. Severe Asthma Research at NHLBI Bethesda, MD Campus
    The NHLBI recognizes that new asthma therapies are needed to control severe asthma in patients. Currently, their Clinical Research Center in Bethesda, MD is conducting research studies on severe asthmatics. To learn more visit:

  2. Severe Asthma Research Program (SARP)
    Sponsored by the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI), the Severe Asthma Research Program works to improve understanding of severe asthma and to find better treatments for severe asthma. For more information visit: www.severeasthma.org.

  3. Find More Clinical Trials for Severe Asthma
    Many more clinical trials have been developed and are in the process of recruiting patients with severe asthma to gain information and develop effective treatment for the disease. For information on clinical trials in your area (including clinical trials for children and adolescents) and to see if you are eligible to participate, visit www.clinicaltrials.gov and search for “severe asthma.”

  4. Children and Clinical Studies

    According to NHLBI, more clinical studies are needed in children to determine if their treatments are safe and effective.
