Understanding the Genetics of Asthma


Trial Objective

Understanding the Genetics of AsthmaBy studying the genes involved with asthma, researchers hope to understand what causes the disease and how to better treat it. For this study, researchers are examining participants’ nasal cells and blood samples for patterns and signatures in their genetic codes. Researchers are collecting samples from participants with all types of asthma, but are particularly interested in gathering more information on Aspirin Exacerbated Respiratory Disease (AERD). AERD causes people to form nasal polyps and have an allergy to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like aspirin.
