TPMG Clinical Research Williamsburg Recruits Patients for Asthma Trials

TPMG Clinical Research Williamsburg Recruits Patients for Asthma Trials

 
October 18, 2021
 
 
Williamsburg, Virginia – The TPMG Clinical Research Division in Williamsburg is currently recruiting for two asthma trials for those with moderate to severe asthma. These trials strive to assist those who have difficulty controlling their asthma.
 
According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, approximately 25 million Americans have asthma and 10 Americans die of asthma every day. This study will possibly assist those who are having difficulty with their asthma symptoms or are looking to try a new inhaler. The studies will run from eight months to one year in length and both will require at least one clinic visit every month for the duration of the trial.
 
“I’ve had patients who couldn’t perform their activities or hang out with their friends and family just because of their asthma,” said Williamsburg Clinical Research Director and lead investigator for the trial, Vijay Subramaniam, MD, FCCP. “Now they are doing so well that people are having trouble keeping up with them.”
 
Eligibility Criteria:
 
–       Eligible participants must be at least 18 years or older
–       Diagnosed with Asthma ≥ 6 months ago
–       Must not currently have confirmed COVID-19 or be suspected of having COVID-19
–       Currently being treated for Asthma
–       Must not be a current smoker (however some smoking history is allowed)
 
These trials also have eligibility requirements specific to each. TPMG Clinical Research staff will screen each potential participant accordingly based on their individual needs and asthma history. To learn more about the study please call (757) 707-3503, email: clinicaltrials@tpmgpc.com, or visit https://mytpmg.com/investigational-treatment-trials-for-severe-asthma/
