Healthy Adults Needed for Beryllium Disease Study Request More Information Trial Objective Chronic beryllium disease (CBD) is caused by inhaling beryllium dust and fumes into the lungs. People with exposure can develop a response to beryllium similar to an allergy which can lead to scars in the lungs and breathing problems. The goal of this study is to understand how certain white blood cells called macrophages function in the development of CBD. By collecting lung and blood samples from healthy adults, our researchers can learn more about the cells involved in the development of scarring lung diseases and ultimately target new treatment therapies. Enrollment New enrollment for this trial is temporarily paused Who Can Participate Healthy, nonsmoking adults with no prior history of respiratory or autoimmune disease who are able to undergo a blood draw and a bronchoscopy. Age: 18-80 Gender: Any Gender Estimated Time Commitment 5 hours over 2 visits During the first visit, participants give consent and receive physical exam. Second visit includes bronchoalveolar lavage and blood draw. The second visit will last approximately four hours. × Payments are intended to compensate the participant for their time and effort during the study. Payments are typically given to the participant at the end of each completed study visit. Reimbursements are intended to compensate the participant for travel-related expenses. They must be approved by the study staff and require you to turn in receipts. Travel reimbursement will vary from study to study.
