(KTVI) – We need a better way to control asthma and Washington University is about to begin a study and they need folks with mild asthma.
Dr. Kaharu Sumino explains the specifics. Dr. Sumino believes a drug used to treat heart failure may help people with asthma.
This is the first large study to look at whether beta-blockers can help control mild asthma. A smaller study has shown that Nadolol was an effective treatment.
Researchers are looking for people 18-60 years old who have mild asthma. There are 14 study visits and two phone calls over 28 weeks.
The study includes a physical exam, breathing tests and a blood draw.
Monetary compensation will be provided.
