Our researchers are currently in need of adult and pediatric study participants to help us pursue better treatments and cures. Participants may receive medical evaluations and procedures, study medication, disease-related education and possible financial compensation for time, travel and participation.





The purpose of the study is to obtain information on if Metoprolol, a commonly prescribed heart medication, can reduce the frequency and severity of COPD flare-ups.
The purpose of this study is to look at current and former smokers who are actively enrolled in lung cancer screening programs and gain information to improve the diagnosis and treatment of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). We would like to look at CT scan images you have already had done as part of a lung cancer screening program. ...
The purpose of this study is to investigate inflammation in the skin of subjects with psoriasis and how this is different from subjects with Atopic Dermatitis. Participation involves 1 - 2 visits, skin culture, blood draw, skin biopsies (2 - 4) and skin tape testing.  
The purpose of this study is to help improve our knowledge of the quality of life in sarcoidosis patients, to understand how the quality of life differs among different types and organ involvement as well as to establish/validate questionnaires to capture that difference. If you decide to enroll in this study, your involvement will include: ...
The purpose of this study is to identify genetic markers associated with the disease sarcoidosis. We are recruiting individuals with sarcoidosis and healthy controls. Participation involves a one-time visit, at which time the participant will sign an Informed Consent form, fill out a questionnaire, and have a low-volume blood draw.
The purpose of this study is to learn more about alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency (AATD) and augmentation therapy. AATD is an inherited condition that causes low levels of, or no, alpha-1 antitrypsin (AAT) in the blood. Augmentation therapy is the use of alpha-1 antitrypsin protein (AAT) from the blood plasma of healthy human donors to augment (in...
The purpose of this study is to learn more about how specific proteins (histones) control your genes and control the inflammation in your lungs which subdquently affect how your sarcoidosis acts. By better understanding how these proteins affect inflammation we can better target them with new treatments.  If you agree to take part in this stu...
The purpose of this study is to learn more about the positive and negative long-term medical effects of marijuana use. Participation involves 1-2 visits to National Jewish Health, which will take up to 3.5 hours to complete. The following research activities will be done: consent, questionnaire administration, blood and urine collection, brea...
<!-- --> Most people with asthma have inflammation in their airway. Asthma controller medications, like inhaled corticosteroids, are meant to reduce inflammation in the airway. Reducing airway inflammation should make one's breathing easier. However, many people with asthma don't breathe easier when they take an inhaled corticosteroid. We know ...
The purpose of this study is to learn more about people with primary insomnia and cognitive impairment. Primary insomnia is having difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep despite adequate opportunity for sleep, and your insomnia is not directly associated with any other health condition or problem. Cognitive impairment is difficulty with m...
The purpose of this study is to see if the amount of sleep you get affects your asthma. Study details: 6 visits to National Jewish Health (including one overnight sleep study) Wearing an “activity” wrist watch for 3 weeks this summer and completing a daily online sleep diary Medical evaluations (including breathing tests) at ...
The purpose of this study is to learn more about new noninvasive ways of detecting lung disease in US military personnel who were deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. We will be conducting a simple breathing test call a lung clearance index (LCI) test.  We hope this LCI testing may be useful in detecting early lung abnormalities that may be seen i...
The study looks to identify the minimal and maximum effective dose of inhaled nitric oxide using an investigational drug/device combination product, the GeNO NITROsyl™ System, when compared to placebo (air).   Pulmonary hypertension (PH) refers to a condition in which high blood pressure exists within the vessels of the lungs. Pulmonary art...
Researchers at National Jewish Health are conducting a lung cancer screening study involving a CT scan and blood biomarker test. Smokers or former smokers between the ages of 50 - 75 who are at risk of developing lung cancer due to their smoking history are encouraged to inquire. Call a study coordinator directly at 303.398.1921 or email lungc...
The purpose of this study is to find out why some people with atopic dermatitis are at increased risk to develop skin infections. Participation involves one, possibly two visits, questionnaire, blood drawn and skin swab.
The purpose of this study is to investigate inherited genetic factors that play a role in the development of familial pulmonary fibrosis and to identify a group of genes that predispose individuals to develop pulmonary fibrosis.  Finding the genes which play a role in pulmonary fibrosis is the first step at developing better methods for early d...
We are conducting a research study of an investigational medication that may improve lung function in those patients with CF by treating harmful bacteria, pseudomonas aeruginosa. The study medication uses a portable inhaler and takes less time to administer compared to a nebulized treatment. Qualifications include: Males and females 18 ...
The purpose of this asthma study is to see if we can determine what medication works best for each individual with asthma. Study details: 10 visits to National Jewish Health (working around school and work schedules!) Asthma education Medical evaluations (including breathing tests) at no cost Asthma medications at no cost ...
The purpose of this pilot study is to learn more about treatments for insomnia. Long-term use and dependence on controlled substance sleep medications (also known as “hypnotics”) is a common issue and is a less than ideal way to treat insomnia. Stopping the use of sleeping pills and trying other treatments for insomnia is difficult for many ins...
