Weinberg Clinical Research Unit’s Actively Enrolling Study Summary

In 2000, the Weinberg Clinical Research Unit at National Jewish Health was created through the generosity of Harry & Jeanette Weinberg of Baltimore, Maryland. Our state-of-the-art pulmonary research facility allows Medical Director, Dr. Rohit Katial, fellow principal investigators and study staff to conduct clinical trials resulting in new disease prevention strategies, enhanced treatments and cures for asthma, allergies, COPD, emphysema, cystic fibrosis, HIV, interstitial lung disease (ILD), cardiology and immunotherapy. Please contact a Patient Recruiter at 303.398.1911 for more detailed information.

If you are 18+ and have asthma with or without allergies, we may have a study for you! Study drug or placebo and study testing at no charge. Financial compensation provided to qualified participants. Please call a patient recruiter at 303.398.1911 to find out more. Learn more about how to participate in this study.

Child Asthma: Does your child have uncontrolled asthma? Researchers at National Jewish Health are studying an experimental add-on study drug for adolescents.

Qualified study participants will receive investigational medication or placebo, asthma tests, ECG and financial compensation for their time and travel.
