Are you interested in taking part in a trial of patients with asthma?
Asthma occurs in all age groups but often starts in childhood. It is a disease characterised by recurrent wheezing, coughing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath.
This condition is due to inflammation of the smaller airways (bronchioles) of the lungs. It affects the sensitivity of the nerve endings in the airways so they become easily irritated. In an attack, the lining of the passages swell causing the airways to narrow and reducing the flow of air in and out of the lungs. The extent of the narrowing, and how long each episode lasts, varies from person to person. At least 1 in 10 children, and 1 in 20 adults, have asthma.
To qualify for participation in this study you need to:
- Be aged between 18 and 77 years (inclusive) at screening
- Have a documented diagnosis of asthma (with a confirmed medical history available from your GP).
- Have a body mass index (BMI) between ≥18.0 and ≤35.0 kg/m2 (inclusive). Your BMI is calculated using the formula: weight (in kilograms) divided by height (in metres) squared).
